Glenn is in no position to threaten you; he is observing how annoying you are, and trying to alert you to the fact that you are not coming over well. Far from threatening, this is a collegial and friendly move.
While I tend to agree that Fred is barking up the wrong tree (and not really helping his case here) - Glenn is being a complete [insert favorite swear word here] for saying things like: "The fact that a few individuals such as yourself oppose EME is of little consequence."  

Nearly 14,000 people and growing have signed a petition opposing this move by the W3C:  

http://www.defectivebydesign.org/no-drm-in-html5

I wouldn't consider those "a few".   

Anyway… Fred, if people like Glenn do send you threatening private emails, by all means publish them publicly to shame them (as it's quite disgusting what Glenn wrote to you and he certainly deserves to be shamed publicly for being an [insert favorite swear word here]). But please don't do it here - instead, fwd the email to defectivebydesign.org (http://www.defectivebydesign.org/no-drm-in-html5), the IETF, or other organizations that are trying to fight DRM on the Web - or write them in blog post.  

Hope that helps!
