This type of email from me would have earned a swift response from the
HTML5 co-chairs. I would have been, and have been for much less,
publicly reprimanded on the www-archive list.

I expect equal treatment for all members of the group, unless there's
some form of bias in effect in the group that applies to some members,
but not others.

This email was inexcusable.
