No, he is arguing with exactly that point.

My problem with support.typo3.org was that *support* site for something 
does not use that something in any way. This looks bad personally for 
me. Not for Kasper and Robert and you. But for me - yes.

I have no enough weight/authority in the community to change this but I 
was really disappointed by this decision. In my personal opinion this 
was a very wrong thing to do.

It is not bad that we have support.typo3.com, it is great! However I 
would see it as running typo3 at least for home and several other pages 
(contact, disclamer, links to other typo3 sites). I.e. user enters 
support.typo3.org that is driven by typo3. But Jive may be a part of 
this site, no problem with this! I am not sure if it is possible 
technically but in my eyes this would be right thing to do.

Anyway, it is done so it is done.
