+1 to Jeff and Maxi's words of personal support.

We are an effective community when people feel welcomed and participate. 
This doesn't happen when people leave, either silently (as is usually 
the case), or publicly as you have suggested here. We should be able to 
hear people's opinions and respect their right to say them. We should do 
our best to ensure opinions are stated respectfully, and encourage 
forgiveness when we slip up and get a bit passionate.

(We say as much in our Code of Conduct). 

Warm regards, Cameron
