This is not at all "authority" and you should stare at the
Send button of your MUA a few minutes before sending again such words.

I could agree with what you said. I just made that point to show this
opinion is shared outside of W3C or WHATWG far beyond unsignificant
levels. I will disclose the name if I am authorized to do it.

That said, there is no reason why you have to reply roughly or even
with mockery. I urge you to reconsider your communication in W3C
channels and in particular in a channel related to the TAG you wanted
to reform, so you said on your blog. You're elected, meaning you're
supposed to carefully listen to the organizations that elected you.
You may disagree with them, but respectfully and still listening.
