F/LOSS is bigger than any one person, and we should demand a higher
standard of ethical behavior from our leaders than the average person.
The individual you mention has repeatedly declined to alter behavior
to stop abusing and alienating women and others, which is a failure to
meet a bare minimum bar that I would demand from my most entry-level

It's regrettable that you would come to such an illogical conclusion.
Since you don't give a fingerprint for your former exit, it's hard to
say how much bandwidth will be necessary to offset what you've done,
but I'll commit to putting in the work to add an exit that meets or
exceeds the two that we currently maintain within the budget year, a
year in which our budget has been mandated to contract by 7.5%.

To others reading this: Jeffrey does not speak for Tor or for F/LOSS.
There are many of us working to make F/LOSS more inclusive and
welcoming, and I hope you will reflect on whether the future will be
better if you join in collective action with those who "Believe in the
necessity of digital autonomy and the powerful role user freedom plays
in protecting our fundamental human rights," or reject that community
in favor of the veneration of an individual whose behavior undermines
that work.
