This raises some more questions: which terms and conditions did people have
to approve to get an @openwrt.org address? Where can these terms and
conditions be found? Is every email sent from such an address supposed to
be discussed and approved by the group before it gets sent?
Furthermore: how many percent of "the group" needs to agree when it comes
to disabling someones address? 50% or 67%?
