Calm down please. I don't scream in public. I tried to start quiet a lot
of discussions in private before I make my decision. You are right.
"Retire" is not a good work for the 4 people that left. Maybe "gone" is
But, seeing your tone, it is very hard for me to even start a discussion
cause everything leads to personal attacks, irony and Mediterranean
temper that we both have. I lost all of my motivation and energy with
Samuli's case. IMHO, kicking them out wont improve anything. They both
agreed to follow the establish policy after all. QA team requires
*active* (do note the word) people, not just people with high respect to
rules. You have to admit, that now, you and Dane are the only ones who
are really *active*. Can you two really handle the QA load by yourself?
Diego, leadership means that you have to motivate and inspire people.
People need to follow you not because they afraid of you but because
they admire and respect you. You never really tried to talk to us and
get some insights. Everytime we received a mail from you it was because
someone has screwed up something and you were mad at him. Please, just
stop and think for a second that you *may* be wrong at some points.
