Update: As of ~1:55pm PST 02/06/22 community stewards have voted, and a majority has been reached to remove Brantly as a community steward. Next steps are being discussed here.
In May 2016, Brantly Millegan tweeted that, “Homosexual acts are evil. Transgenderism doesn’t exist. Abortion is murder. Contraception is a perversion. So is masturbation and porn.”
On February 5th, 2022, brantly.eth, well-known as a prominent representative of the ENS protocol, defended these views in a publicly held Twitter space.
Irrespective of one’s personal beliefs, we, as ENS DAO Community Stewards, must set the example for inclusivity and must not divide our community.
Propagating rhetoric that is viewed as hateful and discriminatory is not conduct conducive to the role as a Community Steward. This conduct will not be tolerated despite one’s contributions to the protocol.
In light of the prior tweets and recent conduct by brantly.eth. I propose that brantly.eth be indefinitely removed as a Community Steward.
As set forth in EP4 Specification 9.1.2 Community Stewards may vote to remove a fellow Working Group steward by a simple indicative majority vote.
I am initiating a simple indicative majority vote for @Community_Stewards here:
Majority, “No”: brantly.eth is not indefinitely removed as a Community Steward. He will remain in place unless a Social Proposal is implemented as outlined in EP4 Specification 9.1.1
Majority, Yes: brantly.eth is removed from the Community Steward role and replaced as defined in EP4 Specification 9.1.5
Additionally, and irrespective of this poll’s results, the ENS DAO will be invoked to consider further action to be made in the best interest of the ENS Protocol.
