That is not a true statement. tptacek never called for Thiel to be removed from YC, and I challenge you to point to any statement of his to the contrary.

> This is the problem with the needle Altman is trying to thread...If Altman means what he says, he should do what he can to shut this question down.

> Thiel doesn't even get equity in YC. Thiel's participation in YC is almost literally just a marketing tactic --- it's a co-endorsement. We're telling Altman: rethink the endorsement. (this is actually copy-pasted again in another comment)

tptacek all but says those exact words. I don't know what other interpretation but YC removal/exclusion is implied.

Your statement is mincing words, as you may infer from tptacek's posts.
