I’m really sorry it has come to this and if suitable I’d like to try and help resolve this situation with y’all in person.
In parallel I’m personally quite concerned with what’s going on, the atmosphere is making me uncomfortable.
The complaint I received about DavidYonatan the other night was that he was talking too much to another person, hours on end.
To me this represents an intolerable level of prying and blocking, on premise of “protecting tami on my watch”, and if that was the manner of scrutinizing his actions since his arrival it does not surprise me that DavidYonatan became upset overtime and passed such criticism (that’s not t say there aren’t justified complaints, but that was not one of them).
I’m worried that the desire to protect is turning an auto-immune condition fulfilling the dangers of doocracy. We hurt ourselves in the process with poor atmosphere and bad publicity while the alternative of amicable, guided soft landing into tami is still on the table and will help grow the community.
I’ve heard plenty of complaints about the poor state of tami from others, so while the context was a heated argument, the content itself is not totally unjustified.
Why not try to learn from criticism and not automatically reject it, and at the very least try to decouple the rejection of criticism to rejection of the person who expressed it (I hope it is clear why).
I’m not saying DavidYonatan’s actions were conducted in the best way, there’s probably room for optimization, however since we moved on to public discrediting , I’d like to offer some counter credit.
In the time I got to work in parallel to him I saw him adding to tami by:
- adding a light fixture to the shelving storage area
- fixing the microscope & screen on the electronics desk
- fixing an overhead hang for the excess of bike components entering tami recently (which may have turned out an undesirable tool, but totally reversible)
- preparing food and sharing it with others which was the motivation for creating a food locker of materials he purchased.
- fixing a billboard on the 1st day he entered in TAMI
Regrettably, due to previous events, people started to lock some things away. I know of at least 5 other lockers in TAMI. I thought the locker of choice and it’s concept was very creative and pretty cool. Even if you don’t agree with it I really don’t see why it is such a big deal and why it should be blocked with such passion.
The motivation of creating food and sharing it with others seems to me to be a positive (non-selfish) one, I hope we can build on that in a way that’s agreeable with everyone.
