You are the one who started a thread called "The end is coming...".  In it,
you said "the maemo community is (almost) nothing without Nokia" and argued
that "the best thing the Maemo community can do over the next year and a
half is to transition to the MeeGo community."  And you have argued against
people at maemo.org organizing themselves, voluntarily.  I don't know if you
are the "primary person" or not, but hey you did put yourself out there.

You stated your opinion - you can own it or not now, that's up to you.  For
me, I hope you continue to debate without any feeling that it somehow
diminishes your long and outstanding contributions to the community and that
the same will go for others, because whether it's comfortable or not, people
need to be free to debate the central issue of maemo.org's future.  No one
has made any personal or name calling attacks of you that I'm aware of, and
I hope it stays that way.
