Bruce, it isn't just you who finds this airy dismissal ridiculous.  In
fact, the only person who's acting like this is dismissed out of hand
is Marc.

Marc, you've been a great contributor to the community, but lately,
you've gotten quite severely off track.  You can continue to help by
straightening up and flying right, but you are, as you have been
reminded publicly in the past, *not* the dictator on this project.
You are not indispensable, and if you continue to pull this nonsense,
you *will* be dispensed with.

Sincerely,
David.
