I wasn't saying anything about the good work he's done for the community... I
*know* that's he's done tremendous work with the things mentioned above. But...
well, see below.

No, your right. I don't know him at all. Fact is, when I heard he unsubscribed,
I thought, because of everything that's happened the past two days, that he took
off to make residence at bit.listserv.coco. When I saw that, I was surprised and
disappointed because of his work in the community and the fact that he started
this because he wanted the community together again. I thought it something to
comment about, although, I turned out wrong. (Which is very good, IMHO.)
I'm not against any one person in this. I just think that we should do what's
best for keeping the larger part of the community together. As it stands right
now, there are a few things that stop us from another migration. (The reasons
have all been discussed in other threads, so I'm not even going to go there.)
This whole debate, in general, has shown that there can be a rift put between us
pretty easily... Let's try and keep this community together. :)
