Adding my thanks to all the volunteers who have put so much of themselves into the MEFAs!
It's unfortunate that there has been some acrimony, but it's a natural product of everyone caring so much about their contributions, and of the limitations of typing at one another. If we could have all gathered in a big room with a neutral moderator it might have gone down differently.
It's also a fact that volunteer-based activities have high turnover -- in fact, they need to, to avoid burnout.
But it sounds like things are evolving quickly past this.
