Let me rephrase that for you ...

Hi All,

thanks for spending your free time to respond to my report. I think that 
dropping the board is not the best option. I am not a developer myself 
but I am happy to help test patches/image. I hope that the board can be 
kept on the list of supported devices as it is working perfectly well.

Kind regards
