Hi JdGordon,
I feel sad that you came to such a decision. Nobody can deny your great job
and I hope you'll continue to work on Rockbox. I did not always agreed with
you on everything but I feel a bit responsible by inaction rather my action
and I guess I'm not the only one. Although I hate to say that, I hope
everyone will realize that mutual respect is the key to a healthy community
Thanks for all your hard work,

Amaury Pouly
