Just to close the loop on my comments from earlier I just had a discussion with David Lindholm (who was CCed on the email to me from Hinchey). He did his best to dig out of the hole Hinchey created with the email and made me fell that as an organization that's not how he wanted to see that handled. Essentially he did his best to separate how he would have handled a response from Hinchey's personal response to my blog post while acknowledging that it was an impossible task to completely do. I'm still not thrilled with what happened but I do think that there are cooler heads in the FO. In particular, after having repeated run-ins like this with his predecessor David Lindholm has done a great job being a liaison point for me (and presumably other media) in dealing with the team. For now I'm going to try to not let Hinchey's blunder reflect on the rest of the organization but his has greatly influenced my opinion of him (which, admittedly, wasn't the best to begin with).
