We are not all against each others. I never wrote or meant that. It is incredible what you read out
of my mails.

(Please note that You is not We.) I also don't like formalism as I clearly stated. But if I am
blamed to violate rules, well then we need a system how these rules are set. Every club has a system
how to set up the club statues. This avoids many discussions and that is why almost all communities

Is that really your understanding of a democratic community? If so then we cannot work together in
future. Everybody has one voice and one opinion. It is absolutely undemocratic to say that someone's
opinion counts more. That reminds me of "Animal Farm" where some animals are more equal than others.

I am childish because I have a different opinion? Thanks for the flowers. I only complained once
because of Jürgen's post. I never said that I really want that we elect an executive board or
something similar. Please re-read my posts before stating things that I did not say.
To quiet the further development maybe it is better to retire from active development. I will reply
to some posts on the list why I wrote what and to point out again what I think we should do. I am
not happy how decisions are currently made. That doesn't mean that I sabotage anything. Nevertheless
you accuse me for that now three times. I don't like to spent more spare time to a project where I
am not allowed to say my opinion. I did not insult anybody personally I only tried to explain what I
want. We obviously don't have the same goals, OK, but please stop blaming me for each and every bit
I do, every opinion I have etc. I just can't stand that anymore. You said we are here for fun. I
have no fun anymore. Please don't write my any more private mails, we can discuss everything on the
list and you can simply ignore me in future if you like.
