        I would like to point out a commonality I have seen about your
 accusations: lack of preparation; it is easy enough to see who
 comprises the ctte, and yet, you fire off the accusations first,
 without being certain if joeuh and frans are members or not.

        This tendency to assume the worst of people and teams before
 doing even rudimentary homework does no credit to your case.

        Yet another accusation of misconduct with no proof whatsoever,
 apart from a conclusion you seem to have jumped to. I can also see
 how this is not condusive to being a member of a team.

        Accusing the members of the ctte of potential mental
 instability well in advance of any evidence of such is also strong
 evidence of a mind set that would find it hard to fit into a team.
 Based merely on your emails, your case, in my eyes, becomes weaker.
