With regards to the above statement from myself here on the discussion
of what to do with Chromium given the circumstances, I would like to
apologise both for the way I reacted and the way I worded that reaction.

I did not indent to be hostile towards anyone, much less our users,
however, I do now realise this is essentially what I projected. For this
I am truly sorry.

I was very angry and felt betrayed, but that is no reason to act out in
this way.

To those, I have hurt or in any way offended, I am sorry and I hope you
can understand.


P.S. Please don't take this email as a way to add or take away from the
ongoing relevant discussion about Chromium's fate. I only kept the list
and thread, for continuity.
