I fully agree with Thomas.  He in many ways has helped our project.
Alfred has, in many was made working on this project more of a burden
then a pleasure.  This project needs people like Thomas, these people
are what make this project thrive.  If this community wants this project
to reach success then we need Thomas -- as well as many others.  What we
don't need is a person cutting others down and making a lot of peoples
lives miserable.

Help bring Thomas back.
