Realizing a problem exists does not guarantee a solution will be found.
You have been a DD for too long to not understand how volunteers scratch
their own itch. Why did you not find a solution? You had the most to
gain from it.
Instead of finding a solution to a conflict between two individuals, you
chose to escalate the problem. Dragging more and more people into it
with incessant complaints has obviously not fixed it. I will not
minimize the wrongs you suffered, but I fail to see how your conduct is
helping the situation. If you try to solve a small problem by creating
a bigger problem, it should not surprise you when people focus on the
bigger problem. Before you send another knee-jerk response, take some
time to think about what other DDs consider to be the bigger problem
(going through the expulsion process should provide a clue ;-).
