How about a yes or no.  You choose to be selective about vetoes in the 
past - should I assume that the your phrase "little choice in the 
matter" comes down to you personal decision to respect a decision or you 
personal decision to ignore a decision?  I'm really interested in your 
answer to this because I want to understand if your serious or not.  The 
only signals I'm getting from you are that Avalon is simply a source for 
forking so you can go off and do your own thing.  If that is the case - 
why are you here? Go ahead and fork and get on with your life.  
Recognize that this place is about a bunch of people who are important - 
and a lot more important that you are - and its those people that 
constitute Avalon.  Up until a couple of weeks ago I considered you part 
of that community but after reviewing your behind the scenes activities 
I no longer feel that way.  Through your actions, you have demonstrated 
rather clearly that "your-way" is more important that this community - 
even worse you are attempting to undermine the very things we are trying 
to achieve.  Why is the idea of collaboration within something bigger 
than yourself so threatening? 

Please Pete - sort out you priorities - either get engaged or get out.
