Plus, he admits himself in that G+ post that he didn't bother asking the other main members... how did he expect them to react? If he'd told them before, posted on the forum about the plans and then Ficeto et al had reacted like he imagines they would have, he would have good reason to be annoyed. But by his own admission, he didn't communicate, he just went behind everyone's back and did it. I can't imagine very many people being impressed at someone doing that to them, especially when they hadn't really been playing a key role in the project for many months.
The irony is that his plan is okay, he makes some very fair points, he just handled it very badly because he didn't communicate with the people who kept his project alive whilst he took time out... and now he seems to be trying to place all the blame for his bad handling on the others.
