David Jay (to another asexual volunteer/activist): 

Look, I don’t have time to babysit the AVEN admod team, nor am I responsible for what they post.  I did not appoint them to those positions.  The community elected them.   I am not going to apologize for what they post on my site. You are just going to have to take the personal attacks and defamation for the sake of the asexual movement.
