As far as I know, I have no *personal* disputes with Danny, so I am not 
sure what we could put "elsewhere". There is no "Danny dislikes Anthere" 
in my world.

I am more the recipiendary of many months of frustration from his part;
either because I am the chair of the organisation;
or more likely because I am the only one on the board currently raising 
governance questions publicly and trying to discuss these issues openly 
(great opportunity to vent).

I am fine with criticism of proposals.

I am not happy with personnal attacks. It is damaging us. Not only me, 
but us. Because there is only so much personnal attacks I am going to 
take. When I am spoken this way, my patience wears thin, I start 
answering shortly, I get rude to my co-board members, I might consider 
stopping discussing governance publicly entirely, or I might quit.
