Dear Glenn,

Thank you for calling me out.  My comments and tone were completely inappropriate and I apologize to yourself and everyone else on the mailing list and will endeavor to make sure I do not make such an inappropriate outburst again.  In particular I support a free and open environment in which everyone can contribute and not be criticized on the basis of their 'technical competence' and am happy to work with anyone who makes an effort, and further it was completely inappropriate for me to be suggesting actions that the W3C might take.

Point of order: I believe the decisions of the working group on these matters demonstrate that the many of the participants and in particular Chairs are either not competent to work on this specification and/or acting in bad faith.   The W3C requires members to be technically competent and to act in good faith.  I believe the W3C has been mislead by the working group and should reevaluate its position on the EME specification on this basis and investigate the competence and actions of the participants of this working group and take appropriate action to ensure the individuals and their organizations are no longer able to command positions of any consequence in the standards setting process.

Up until now, the WG and the chairs have been genuinely attempting to understand and respond to your comments. However, this kind of diatribe has no place here or in the W3C at large. I suggest you take up your concerns directly with the W3C Team or Advisory Committee from here on. I suspect you aren't going to receive much response from this group henceforth.
