In any case... stop assuming that what *one* person says is
representative of the entire (ASF) community. That simply isn't true.


That blog is responsible for quite a lot of ill-will. Here's a quote
from the end of the blog:
"I have a vision of a free, high quality productivity suite, one based
on open standards and open source, one that doesn’t treat the web and
mobile and tablet form factors as a design afterthought,  one that has
a strong extensibility and programmability model that makes it the
preferred platform for innovation, one that has a dedicated community
of supporters.  I’ll need your help to get there."

The use of "I" twice does give the impression of leadership. It would
have been nice if someone from ASF had promptly undertaken
fire-fighting there.

The ASF does not police speech on the Internet.

Bob is not even part of the project (his name is not listed among the
contributors in the proposal). Nothing more to say than that.
