Sven, after over a month of irrational, paranoid ranting from you why
should we believe you will take this any more seriously? In the
original mediation attempt, AJ and I discussed options with both you
and Frans and came up with what we believed to be a reasonable
compromise that would allow you to work on d-i without forcing others
on the team to have to work with you. Your idea of compromise
apparently involves "give Sven what he wants" and very little more, so
you immediately rejected it. You then went on to accuse AJ of
"stabbing you in the back". That was the point when I gave up on
trying to reason with you.

In light of the situation as it stands, I'd rather support a move to
simply block you from the mailing lists until you learn some
self-control. In fact, due to the amount of damage you're causing at
the moment I wouldn't need much convincing to go further and support
expulsion proceedings. I had _no_ axe to grind with you before this
sorry mess started - it's entirely your actions in the last couple of
months that have made my mind up. Think on that, *please*.

[ Also, as you ignored my pleas in my last message yesterday: I'm not
  going to respond to you any further nor read any more of your
  ranting. ]
