Dear Summit-2013 Committee,

I have been told that I have the mouth of a sailor and the social grace of
a bull in a china shop. Combine that with the the difficulties of
communicating by email where you loose my passion, body language, tone of
voice and smiling face; and the likelihood miscommunication and of my being
offensive sky-rockets.

I fully realize that OWASP is made of people from the "A" team, each of you
are incredible people at the top of your careers, passionate about what you
do and pulling in roughly the same direction. You are all people to whom I
owe a deep gratitude and whom I feel very lucky to work with and know.

If I have offended anyone (highly likely) please forgive my transgressions.

I think Mark remained particularly passionate, and a professional despite
public criticism, and negative feedback, and his desire to keep things
moving in the face of such adversity is truly admirable.

I sincerely hope that despite this experience Mark remains tenacious and
passionate as a member of OWASP. Mark's passion, tenacity and desire to
bring people together are exactly the fires that keep the engine of OWASP

And while such alergic reactions are at times healthy for the community,
they are quite stressful and taxing to the individual. I spend a great deal
of time worrying about how such friction keeps people with less character
than Mark just displayed from participating at all.

Thank you for your efforts Mark!
