I agree with that statement.  Please re-read my comment; I did not
complain about your questions.  I don't like your insults, especially in
this case when they are also untruthful.  You know I made several
suggestions to improve community involvement and influence in the GA, so
I will not stand for your personal attacks.

You are very much _not_ the last man standing for democracy in the FSFE.
Democracy is not about who can yell the most or who can yell the
loudest.  Your current actions are often disruptive and drown out other
people's ideas and voices in the GA.  And when you ask questions, you
often fail to do so and follow up in any sort of structured way, and you
draw conclusions from details that often do not represent what the
majority in the GA actually think.  Also, the last time you asked for
community feedback in person, you afterwards failed to answer any
questions about comparing your stated goal with the outcome and you
report stayed anecdotal.  Please be more constructive; I want to work
with you, not against you.

Happy hacking!
