Er, so the only alternatives here are "practicing the sort of vaunted levels
of communication that [you] vowed to bring to SPI" and "organizational
incompetence"?  I would have suspected your black-and-white existence to be
rather bleak, but clearly you find ample cause for excitement...  Or perhaps
you're referring to some accusation of incompetence that *wasn't* quoted in
your message to debian-vote?  Something less balanced and defensible than
Branden expressing irritation at being called (in his words) an "ungrateful

Pot, meet the kettle.  You accuse him of "publicly" talking about Brainfood
incompetence, when for most people on this list, *your post* made his
comments far more public than Branden himself did.  Oh, and I'm sure your
mom is also sure to appreciate what your post has done for the results of a
google search on her name.  This all seems a rather contrived justification
for posting such a bewilderingly off-topic message to debian-vote about
someone who hasn't even nominated himself as a candidate.  I agree with
Thomas: your post says much more about you than it does about Branden.
