Well, you fared pretty badly, IMHO.

We're dealing with the public representation of our project here,
not with personal issues, or your nerves.

-d-announce and -announce are two different reader audiences. You
can't take one and just pipe it through to the other.

Whoever wants to push opening access to the -announce (and -news)
mailing lists has my vote. The current situation, in which Joey is
solely responsible and freely decides how to deal with the pressure
is, IMHO, unacceptable for a project of our size. I suggest we
appoint a team that can send announcements, and use the -publicity
mailing list for the preparation and coordination.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
