You know, crap happens and sometimes things are misunderstood online.

But for the moment could we all please refrain from posting in this
thread and/or topic anymore, at least for a few days or maybe a week.
I don't feel that anything productive is coming out of it. I and
others like Michael S tried to provide some action points to move
things forward, but nonetheless the arguing continued. Though Waldemar
did make the changes I suggested for the admin page on the web-site,
which was great.

The BeOS and by extension the Haiku community has always been a very
laid back and friendly community and I think we should all take a step
back and try to remember that.

Jorge, I don't think you are a bad person, and you've contributed some
great things to Haiku, but I must admit your style of communicating
can be abrasive at times. While I'm sure it can be frustrating being
the sole marketing guy in the admin team, you are a bit assumptive to
think no developer could understand marketing. Maybe that is not what
you are saying, but it came off that way in your communication. The
point is, I can't imagine things in the admin team were quite as black
and white as you perceived. But please, I ask you with utmost
sincerity to let this topic quiet down for a week or so and refrain
from posting another long reply.

Thanks and hoping I can act like a 3rd party in this debate,
