I don't believe your mail gives an accurate account of events. From my
records the discussion was mainly off-list, and the decision to
deprecate community.linkeddata.org was a group decision, not mine
alone. At some point after that decision was taken, the Openlink Data
Spaces instance that you hosted at that subdomain disappeared.

(For the record I never hosted anything at this subdomain, it was
simply pointed using a DNS CNAME record at an EC2 instance
administered by Openlink.)

It would be useful if you could properly reference the mails in
question so others can refer to them easily. I've assembled those
messages I've found which are relevant to the topic and will put these
online shortly so others have access.
