I am not a member of the "elite Quaker geek channel", so I ask:

So I am seeing two very serious accusations here:

 1. You claim the CC asked you to step down from Kubuntu.
 2. You claim the CC have a deliberate intention to kill off the
Kubuntu project from the the broader Ubuntu ecosystem.

These are very serious charges, Jonathan. Please share the evidence of
these claims.

This evidence should be clear, undisputed material clearly shows the
malice you allege.

I am not saying you are wrong and that these things didn't happen, and
if you can provide clear evidence the CC have acted in this way, to
deliberately target you for removal and the project for removal, then
I will be your biggest supporter and advocate. If the evidence lives
up to these claims, I would go as far as to request the removal of the
current members of the CC, at least those who acted in malice.

Until you provide evidence though, this this is not just hyperbole,
but harmful hyperbole designed to undermine and malign people without
fair cause. This is bad for a community, and this is why you *have* to
provide evidence to back up these very serious charges.
