That sounds unusually anti-democratic.  A staunch democrat votes.

This sounds more than a little disingenuous.  It sounds like you are
implying that the GA scarcely go to free software events and/or only
had a meeting to vote on a single matter.  Both couldn't be further
from the truth.

I am certain that there is a better platform or way to address these
disagreements than what looks like airing dirty laundry in public,
though.  The CoC mandates that criticism be constructive, and claims
like this...

I assume you have good intentions, Daniel, and love free software every
bit as much as the rest of us, so I want to ask you if your issues can
be addressed with the same assumption of good intentions.

Yours faithfully,
