If no one person was intended to be singled out, why respond to Dan's message. His message, that which you quoted, stated simply that he was removing himself from a lot of evolt.org duties. Why say "As are we all, Dan." and then proceed to re-explain to him on what we are all working towards? Sounded like singling out to me, consciously or subconsciously. I believe your message could have been attached to Amanda's second post with equal effect but wasn't. Not that it really matters. I was mainly just curious. I'll drop it now as others have suggested.
