Yes it does. You're just interpreting it that way.

I predict that even if the rest of us all come to a consensus, they are going to merge everything exactly like Aurinĭa proposed just because she's an admin and the rest of us are not. (Of course, this won't be their (publicly) stated reasoning, but it will probably determine the outcome nevertheless). I'm not even sure the Ukrainian forum will survive, even though I agree that it should survive. Sorry, Irusia.
Vijay, I'm not sure what you meant to say, and you can write what I say off as "he's a mod now, so he's siding with Yserenhart", but my understanding of what you wrote was exactly as Yserenhart understood it: you were referring to everything around the AAPL forum, not just the fact that the name became AAPL rather than Pacific. Meaning, you see the admins as ignoring all the discussion around should a forum exist, what should it entail, which threads should be included, and what should this new forum be called. How can you say that your words implied or lends itself to an interpretation solely about the rejection of Pacific as a forum name? You neither included the word "name", nor phrased your statement of your worry in any way to imply a limited scope of just the "name". You may have meant to say that, but you and I both know that if we show just that first sentence to any English speaker, they will assume "everything" mean everything!
