I stand behind Josh and share his thoughts on this issue. 

I don't have more to add to this conversation. Looking forward to us all moving forward on more productive items.

If there is a single OWASP Leader who feels that Christian should be allowed to continue with this nonsense, then speak up now.  Otherwise, Christian, let me be clear.  You don't scare me.  You don't intimidate me and I have nothing to hide.  I was elected to the OWASP Board because I have shown myself to be a leader within our community and now I am going to lead.  But, let me be clear about one thing.  I did not select you, you selected you. I am just taking a stand against your soulless, thoughtless, heartless, and relentless attacks on people who are the heart and soul of this organization. It cannot be tolerated any longer and, yes, you are correct, at this point I will use every policy, every Bylaw, and every legal means at my disposal to ensure that these attacks are stopped.  So, Christian, this is your one and only warning from me, as an OWASP Board Member, as an OWASP Leader, as a member of the Security Community, and as a man.  I implore you to put the past behind you, stop this destructive behavior, and move on with your life.  You must be joking if you think I am going to step down.  Christian, from this point forward, I'm stepping up.
