I couldn't find any discussion about opening the group there however.
When acting under LibreOffice name, whatever the cause, it would be good
to inform and discuss it with the community before...

Like discussed on Telegram, when something is trending everywhere you
need to act in quite an urgency. Seeing the LibreOffice team name being
taken by someone not from the community would have been more annoying to
recover afterwards.[1] The same applies basically with everything for
which asking for agreement would take an eternity to resolve.[2] Time
flies faster on social media than in real life.

You should *always* discuss with the community before opening *any*
service under the name of LibreOffice or TDF. When you engage the
responsibility of the whole project a second thought is *always* needed.
After, like Mastodon, it's too late and damages are done to the community.

Stopping here because I could do other things more meaningful for the
community instead of quibbling for basically no reason.

For no reason? do you think that engaging the project without notifying
the list for a second look is something that could be called quibbling?

But I'm keeping your remark with great attention in my head. My huge
number of mails with is indeed a problem I need to
resolve fast. I'm receiving more of them than I can answer a day
unfortunately. :(

And spending time to correct what you did wrong take also a lot of time,
so please consult the community before sending blogs or subscribing the
project to services. We could avoid a lot of work correcting the bad
effects afterwards.
