I always tried to abide by the spirit of the rules.
If people belive otherwise they should point out where i broke which rule
with reference to commit and point of the written policy.
Nothing will be changed by trolling on irc about vague rule breaking nor
by voting for a point C about me following rules when iam unaware of what
rule it is that iam supposed to have broken.

Or to say it differently, I can continue as leader and follow rules to the
best of my ability or i can step back
But i cannot follow something more, that to the best of my knowledge i already

Thus please tell me exactly which rule ive where broken, and iam sure this
can be reseolved through discussion but i dont see how a vote could resolve

Opposition brings concord. Out of discord comes the fairest harmony.
