Your statements have had the (perhaps inadvertent) effect of maligning
not only myself but also several well-respected members of the Ruby
Community who have contributed to the EventMachine project generously

Rubyforge project page and at various points in the EM source code.

On behalf of all those people, I accept your gracious and sincere apology.
