@martinkrung Wow interesting discussion. My thoughts are that you should have expected at least some pushback since you were going around the governance process of dxDao which is setup this way to prevent things like this from happening.
Im not that much familiar how far Aqua/Mesa has gotten but it would be nowhere near it is today without you that’ for sure. You did the best you can In attracting people and working with very limited resources and state of Mesa/Aqua. There seems to be discussion on how effective you are in terms of squad leader which is totally acceptable and every squad leader or worker should be evaluated not just you. I think we are kinda missing that part on all fronts. We need to evaluate if decisions in terms of product strategy make sense and If we are moving in right direction and should adapt or change direction we are heading. We all wan’t the same thing in the end! That our products are succesfull and used by people.
But my main concern is how you reacted to totally reasonable feedback you got. Instead of trying to understand their point of view and see how we could work around it, you started talking about damages to dxDao ,that you are harassed and that this is a bribe, this is toxic, kinda trying to rally people that we are treated unfairly which is totally untrue also attacking some people. This raises a lot of red flags for me since it tells me that you are not that open minded and receptive to negative feedback, as squad leader you need to have those characteristic to be effective. And the worst thing is that you are contemplating leaving dxDao and you stopped working, instead of giving it all in trying to resolve hard issue at hand and moving forward with working on product which is only thing that matters in the end all this aside. What will happen tomorrow when you encounter worse crisis with Aqua (which will happen most likely)… will you leave?
Those are my concerns. Hopefully we get to resolution of this
