I just saw this thread, sorry for reviving it. I had something I wanted to say.
First, I'm sure this was incidental, but I can't be the first one who noticed this A-Team reference - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIfuaUTH9Y4 (There was a recent movie too, but most anglophones think of that show when a reference to the A-team is made. ;) ) Second, I have met Tinu once very briefly, but I've known of him for almost 2 years. To be frankly honest, I'm not one of your fans and that is fine. But you have been doing good work, and it would be a net loss to everyone to not have you there. I can understand family commitments and time constraints, but instead of this complaining departure, I would hope you remain involved, like Gautam. I suppose I shouldn't bother pointing out the irony of running in an election and complaining about politics later. Any elected position is inherently, a political one, how much, is usually the question. My personal opinion is, that being on the board of a chapter burned you off a bit and you need a short break to recoup. I hope you consider that. I really don't like indirect references, and veiled allegations. As for the "A-team" or any other team, I have one guess who you are alluding to, it is really not subtle. But I would like to make one thing clear, as far as I'm concerned, I have absolutely no problem repeating whatever I have said about you or anyone here, be it about you, IP, Hisham, Barry or anyone else. You are on some of the other lists, so you know what I mean. My allegiance is not to anyone, be it the IP, or even the chapter - it is to what I think is right. Just for the sake of clarification, my only involvement with the chapter this year was limited to informing them about my nomination for the WMF board, which if I recall, I emailed you too, along with a couple of community members not on the chapter board. Before that, was about the IEP last year, when you said there is no difference between me and Hisham, and I said "you pissed me off" in a private email to the chapter. That is the extent of my dealing with the India chapter or you for that matter, any other allusions might very well be fabrications. Anywho, in light of your concern in your departure blog about the IP, instead of the community, or any larger goal, I would also like to suggest you reconsider joining the IP. I honestly mean that. Either way, I hope you remain involved in some capacity.
