There was plenty enough time to preemptively suspend him or whatever. Nothing 
happened and he went on with his accusations today. That was the one straw 
after the last straw for me.

VLC was a free time hobby. That implies it had to be fun. Right now, it is 
everything except fun. If I were paid, I would suffer it, but I am not.

I do not want to be involved while Rafaël is. It will only result in 
frustration, anger, trolling, insults, commit/revert wars, etc. I honestly 
think this would not be for the best of the project.
