Consider this his farewell present :-( Well, what did you guys expect? From my point of view a lot of people came down on him pretty hard, so is it any wonder he may want to sever all ties, and not spend any more of his time/money/emotions. I don't know what you guys see, or why you felt and responded the way you did. I fail to see Jorge as a poisonous person. Yes, he used a lot of words and he pointed out a lot of things that people didn't think was relevant now, or ever, but it's sad how the project failed here. How we failed here. Perhaps if Jorge would just have stopped using his happy smiley and just get mad for once, this wouldn't have gone as far. I'm sorry to have to state this so bluntly, but I think that's the least I can do. Jonas Sundström.
