On the other hand, I and others do not tolerate being "fired" by

Resigning is a logical consequence of our actions that will actually
happen soon, being kicked out and accepting it means we acknowledge
that Oracle has the right of life and death over the OOo
community. Good thing we went to open the Document Foundation then!


reading stuff like this doesn't make me feel like I'm being treated
like an adult.

Here's what I actually read in the paragraph I quoted:

       You will not acknowledge that you won't accept anymore the fact
       that Oracle has right of life and death over the OOo community
       now, by "being kicked out and accepting it". Because you've
       already acknowledged that you wouldn't accept that right in the
       very moment when you announced TDF, by creating it.

       You wanted since the beginning Oracle to fire you, to prove
       that they are indeed tyrants (which they proved quite well,

       And this is the only reason why such a logical consequence of
       your action as resigning didn't happen simultaneously to the
       announcement of TDF. I honestly can't imagine any other

If I completely misunderstood or missed something, please explain. In
any case, as far as I am concerned none of the above means that
creating TDF was wrong or that I approve what Oracle did. I am just
saying that this side of the whole messy matter doesn't seem to have
been managed properly, and that statements like the one above are,
uhm, a bit weak?
