[Owasp-leaders] Nuanced Apologies

To all the people who work hard at OWASP as volunteers, I do not
apologize to you because I clearly was only directing my comments at
people who provide a lot of "feedback" on lists but do not do work.
Active volunteers are the lifeblood of the foundation.

To all the people who do not volunteer for OWASP and are consumers of
OWASP resources, you are awesome. Thanks for jumping in and asking
questions about AppSec, please do more of it. AppSec questions on-list
is a kind of communication that is critical and helps all of us.
Especially basics. It's all good. I think **everyone** around here LOVES
fielding AppSec questions when they can help. That's when we're all at
our best.

Now to those of you who do not actively volunteer yet choose to provide
negative feedback about the OWASP foundation and your opinion about how
terrible we are, I do apologize to you as I was directing my comment
towards you and your behavior. Again, to those of you who do not
actively volunteer and only provide negative feedback, I do apologize.

Aloha, Jim
