This proposal is made under the Formal Process for Adding/Removing DAO Committee Members Section 3. Therefore it cannot be seen as an invalid question.
Mathew Markman, who goes by Matimio in Decentraland, and is the team manager of the DAO Facilitation Squad, has been acting outside of the scope of their authority and promoting his own biased political agenda that is detrimental to the health and well-being of the entire Decentraland community.
Mathew Markman is not some innocent underdog here. Mathew Markman holds a PhD in political science, among other degrees, and has long been active in politics. It is important for you to keep in mind that this individual is influenced by their political beliefs and motivations. As you evaluate their credibility, please consider their biases, and assess the evidence presented in a reasonable way.
See Matimio’s Linkedin
Here you can see what his interests are and it seems that he is quite familiar with Fascism and Far Right Extremism
Votes in favor of this pre-poll will result in removal of this committee member and will leave this Team Manager position open which is has a salary somewhere between $58.33 & $87.50 an hour. Certainly, I am sure we can find someone who is “more fit” for this position at that salary.
Matimio has acted outside of their authority by:
Creating working groups without DAO Approval
Matimio proposes and establishes a Formal Process for DAO Governance which includes governance proposals in 3 stages.
Matimio created a pre-proposal to create a process to form working groups. It passed, and never promoted it to draft or a governance proposal.
Matimio created working groups in Decentraland DAO discord which act like a working group, have discussions like a working group and are under the Discord Category titled “Working Groups.”
The DAO Facilitator Squad’s claim defending this is they are only called working groups, but they are only “discord channels.” If something quacks like a duck, acts like a duck, but is called a cow, is it a duck? These ARE acting as working groups which is a violation of the authority granted to him under the DAO.
These issues have been brought to them by ZumMond in the Decentraland DAO general chat, but since have been deleted. Seems like censorship and controlling their political agenda. As Matimio stated “culture produces political outcomes.” If you control the culture, you control the political outcomes.
Unable to act in an unbiased manner in his DAO Facilitator role
Matimio associates himself with the ideology of pluralism. He also has an aggressive stance against any culture whom is among his far left ideologies.
Yes “Wikipedia” articles will mention famous names like Socrates and Aristotles as being part of the pluralist ideology, but that is far from true. The Pluralist ideology has claimed ownership of leaders whom these Pluralists cannot prove actually had those ideals or acted in purely in favor of that ideology. Pluralism is purely an agenda that acts against individual thought. In fact Pluralists despise the individual, but will go in full strength promoting their agenda to further their own selfish opinions and needs. You will see this with Matimio.
Matimio has consistently promoted a political agenda that is biased and divisive to the community, which is not in line with the community’s values and principles.
The actions and behavior of DAO Facilitator Squad have had a negative impact on the community and have hindered the ability of the DAO Faciliatator Squad to achieve its goals of promoting open discussions and beliefs. Facilitating ideas that can be discussed in a friendly way.
- Matimio has prematurely cut people off in Town Hall meetings during the open discussion at the end. I recall him claiming there was 10 minutes left and a conversation was happening that he opposed to so he cut the meeting short with 5 minutes left. This was his way of controlling community culture which fits his political agenda.
- Matimio banned Tudamoon permanently for claiming that he was disrespectful, but when asked to produce the evidence, failed to show it. Meanwhile, I have witnessed arguments between him and Tudamoon and Matimio has claimed to highly oppose Libertarianism, which from what I understand seems to be an open belief system promoting the individual.
There have been other Discord members who align with his views who have actually been “disrespectful,” but he has chosen to look past those individuals’ actions because they align with the culture he is trying to promote. Is a closed controlled culture any better than a dictatorship? Does web3 have a defined culture or a correct way to act?
- Matimio is not facilitating DAO discussions. He is only promoting his ideology and will not allow other ideologies to have a voice in his culture.
In fact, Gold Guy was timed-out earlier today in the Decentraland DAO for asking questions. The DAO Facilitator team moderates this discord. There seems to be a problem with asking questions that spark thought. It’s almost as if he and his team are trying to discourage opinions and create a culture that they like, not what the users of Decentraland want. We are aiming for decentralization for a reason. Therefore all opinions and questions that are not scams, should be allowed.
Ad Hominem attacks are different, but if it is not a direct attack on one’s person, it should be permissible.
It is important for the community to maintain a healthy and harmonious environment for all members, and this proposal is intended to ensure that the actions of one individual do not harm the community as a whole. Let’s remove Matimio from his position of Team leader and give someone the role of Team Manager of the DAO Facilitator Squad that will promote integrity, accountability, free speech and facilitate conversations in a meaningful way that will improve Decentraland Governance as a whole.
- Remove Matimio
- Keep Matimio
- Invalid question/options
