The Bitcoin network is owned by the *owners* of the Bitcoins.You only need to answer the following question:
Is this network owned by Theymos or all users of Bitcoin?
Then it comes pretty obvious who should decide.
Sure he can and obviously does. I don't know who handed him control of bitcoin.org, bitcointalk.org, /r/Bitcoin and en.bitcoin.it (Bitcoin Wiki), but those sites are not some personal blog. They hold great influence in Bitcoin ecosystem (not least because many consider them as community sites) and should have been governed accordingly.Bitcointalk and /r/bitcoin are websites (not part of the Bitcoin network) and they are owned by Theymos. On his own sites he can do whatever he likes, cat pictures everywhere, fascist theocracy, redirect to fed.gov, whatever.
Of course not. I'm just saying that steering community opinion by manipulating content on these sites is an irresponsible thing to do. I don't particularly care what Theymos writes in his personal blog, but some these websites have been part of Bitcoin since the whitepaper.(Are you proposing some kind of Bitlicense thing, where any website operator needs to contact "ladoga" for permission before taking a Bitcoin-related website action?)
