When I name names, I do wrong and the people I name start yelling at me.
If I don't I do wrong, too. You cannot do right for everybody.

I'm not going to leave, at least not at this point. I still love Fedora,
it's values and it's community. I don't get up that easily and I still
have hope. I'm going to travel to the EMEA FAD next weekend and I'm
looking forward to meet Jared there. Do you think I'd spend 3 days of my
rare spare time and pay over 500 EUR from my pocket for this if I
wouldn't - after all - love Fedora?

If people followed your advice, the European community would become very
small all over sudden.

Sad but true,
