Terminating membership and banning banning mz from HM

mz accused several members of racism, sexism and transphobia and subsequently lobbied for their banning. mz does not understand jokes. It led to the insinuation that he is a Maoist dictator and HR when he was still part of the board. He yelled at people if he felt members severely overstepped boundaries, even during an open house incident in which he accused a member of making racist jokes targeting a member that had previously mentioned that he was targeted by such jokes before. His board membership prevented a "diversity of thought" on the board leading to problematic relationship between the board and the membership. He does not accept explanations for repeated missteps. This situation needs to be resolved. mz hereby proposes the termination of mz's membership and subsequent permanent banning from the space.
