With all due respect,

I consider Jeff and Dave to be founding members and indeed the reason 
that OWASP survived and flourished. Mark also believed in them, indeed 
he turned OWASP over to them; and Jeff and Dave gave OWASP stability and 
the OWASP Top 10. Our beloved community would likely not exist, or would 
be entirely unheard of if not for their contributions.

Everybody here at OWASP to one degree or another should be first assumed 
to have good intentions - even when the community has been *seemingly* 
harmed. Our mission is based in altruismm and we all have various 
degrees of comfort with this selflessness and will all make different 
choices based upon our understating and commitment to altruistic 

Times changes many things, but we all owe respect to Dave and Jeff, 
first of all because we should treat others the way we want others to 
treat us, and second because without their contributions we would very 
likely not have an OWASP community to be part of.

I ask the community to keep those rulse in mind when dealing with each 
and every member of OWASP, we have all paid a price to be here; and we 
have far more in common than not.
