Jóhann's email didn't make the list, so I don't know what else he said,
but I, for one, did not come away with that interpretation. I don't
think it's uncommon, or a bad thing, for teams to have *team leaders*.
And it's not a big secret that you are the design team leader. That
certainly can mean you have more influence on our team decision making,
but again, not necessarily a bad thing, and it doesn't negate the
importance of the anyone else's membership or input in the team.

I agree with you here 100% - fun, welcoming, ninja-friendly, and now
available with pandas!
