Please don't make such repeated orders.

We can take our own decisions. Fow now the questin is being discussed but
blocking dicussions by organizeing a boycott is counter-productive. I don't

> It is clear to me that the Foundation no longer considers the

> internal disagreements through discussion and consensus.
> Please remember that your volunteer contributions to fundraising pages
> directly sustain such actions of the Foundation.  Your work helps them
> save time and effort that they would otherwise have to invest in
> recruiting, training and managing new employees, and saves them money
> they would otherwise have to spend on professional translations.
> Suspending translation of fundraising pages brings pressure on the
> Foundation, and makes them re-consider the importance and value of the
> volunteers community, which can hopefully lead to the reversal of the
> unacceptable changes of the past weekend.
> There are many ways to help the Wikimedia movement while
> simultaneously expressing dissatisfaction at the recent actions of the
> Foundations — there are thousands of messages in the MediaWiki
> software and its extensions, and user manuals and help pages that
> await translation.
> If you disagree with the actions of the Foundation, please consider
> expressing your dismay by withdrawing your help in translating
> fundraising pages and focusing your efforts on those areas that help
> your fellow volunteer Wikimedians.
> Thank you so much for reading and for your consideration.
