NO ONE hid anything from you at any point. And that is not going on now

Had you bothered to ask first you would have found out that ALL of these
particulars you bring up below and elsewhere were discussed at length,
including the removal of the packages and their disposition. These
discussions took place over a period of almost two weeks (13 days as you
point out) with several TUs on the TU's irc channel. We reached an agreement
just yesterday. It was neither the secret you suggest nor did it require any
psychic powers on your part to find out the information. You needed to
merely ask.

Or did you NOT believe or understand Daenyth when he told you in an email I
had been planning to resign ? Did you not understand when he suggested that
you to find out the rest of the 'story' from me ? You had merely to write me
and ask in any event. You chose not to. These emails between yourself and
Daenyth took place before you wrote up this proposal, so it is silly for you
to suggest that you could not have known or that I expect you to have
psychic powers. That's nonsense young man.

You SHOULD take responsibility for what you did as well as the results of
your actions. Quit blaming me or anyone else.
