Isni't he responsible for ENTERPRISE too.

Wiki~
Along with Star Trek franchise head and Enterprise co-creator Rick Berman, Braga has often been the subject of heated fan criticism, especially with regards to his showrunning duties on Voyager and Enterprise.[11][12] Responding to accusations from Star Trek fandom that he was responsible for Star Trek's declining ratings and eventual cancellation, Braga commented:
It's not a pleasant thing to think of yourself [as] to blame. There are other factors involved with Star Trek losing its audience appeal over the years, but [...] I will take my share of the blame creatively. It's almost impossible for me to sit here and say 'yes, I did this, that, and this wrong' and I'm certainly not going to get on the internet and look at what the fans think, because that would be too painful. But give it a little more time [and] I'm sure I can look back and figure out what the f*** I did wrong."

He's a potty mouth too.

Star Trek did have its issues during the VOY and ENT years. The causes were that a) the studio sucked out the franchise and produced too much Trek in too little time, b) the studio didn't allow Berman and Braga to realize there more unusual ideas in ENT and c) that Berman and Braga stayed too long aboard which lead to a a sense of familarity and lack of new ideas ... yet you cannot blame them, after all they are in a freelancer business.

But as usual people need scapegoats.

By the way, I am also a pottymouth, f**k, f**k, f**k.

It's called a parody. Chill.

As others have pointed out, it was not a personal thing. I have too many friends who like Star Trek so much that they have their quirks about the who's, what's and wherefores regarding its lifespan. They know I simply joke. Besides, I've been a fan for 38 years.

But, if you ARE going to take this so seriously that you think you have to resort to futile and laughable threats, then you need to go elsewhere, where someone might actually take you seriously.

That is a very useful statement from the San Diego Natural History Museum

Are you his friend, do you guys golf together? So if you are just a jokester then let it be.
No, he wasn't. Look around at his threads. He is not attacking you.
