"In his resignation message, Srivastava said: "I concede that I have made mistakes with the current set of votes. And the arguments being made now, after the vote was called and started, are fairly compelling. But these arguments could have been made when the vote page went up, when I was sending in the emails about which option had how many seconds, or when the draft ballot was sent in. There are, in my opinion, far more cogent arguments being offered now, than there were in the discussion period, and had these being made earlier, we would not have come to this pass."

"He added: "It has been made clear to me that the project no longer trusts me, and many consider that I have been the epitome of sleaze over the years, manipulating votes for my own ends. That hurts. I have also read planet. The amount of vitriol there makes it untenable for me to participate in any efforts to recover from this mess."
