I completely agree with everything Daniel says below.
> To all:
> If I had been in Jeff's place, I would have given up on talking to this
> list long ago. I'm sorry, but people in this list, in particular PJ,
> have been quite vicious in their attacks and have taken the slightest
> nuance of everything Jeff says as proof that Gnome is the spawn of the
> devil. What has occurred in this list is not civil discourse, and it
> should not have been allowed.
> I intend this to be my only email to this thread, because honestly I
> have no energy for the kind of discussion that is going on in this
> thread. I am embarrassed to think that this is the kind of group I
> helped form. This is not at all the community I envisioned when the
> Fellowship was first created. I dreamed that it would be a place where
> people would work constructively to make real progress for ODF. I did
> not expect that today it would one day resort to witch hunts and "you
> are either for us or against us" kind of positions and in-fighting with
> other FOSS projects.
> I don't expect that this email will alter the views of those who have
> participated in this thread. I expect that nothing will. But maybe
> others readers will get something from my post.
