Thaddeus, I think that you've made a terrible mistake with the mail
you've sent. You've reacted with anger, mixing your own experiences
with those that you had just read in a piece of mail.
James Troup may be guilty of many things, but I believe he was not the
reason why Joey decided to resign as SRM.
Maybe if you let a couple of hours go, you'll realize that your
reaction was rushed and that you should have put a bit more of
rational thought in the mail you were writing.
For the next time, it would be better if before asking the DPL to
relieve a fellow developer from his duties and making such a big plea
as you've made, you'd consider hearing all the different sides of the
story, taking into account the many additional factors, and then -and
only then- write such a petition.
