[TriLUG] appropriate use of privileged access to TriLUG-owned

As a long time member of the LUG and former SC member yourself, I'm
sure contacted the SC directly so that they could, perhaps, address this
issue? If not, I would suggest that you go through that path first
before airing your grievances publically next time.
However, I do agree that the idea that "I'm the SysAdmin, Deal with it"
is the wrong attitude for a member-driven group unless there is prior
justification based on the actions and attitudes of the member in
question. I'm sure that you've NEVER done anything to justify bot privs
being revoked on #trilug.
