They changed the wording on my proposal and I told them I wasn't soliciting input or alterations; they continued to reword my proposal so I walked out of the meeting.
It seems that you got the ball rolling with your proposal, was unwilling to accept a deviation in it's course, and when it didn't go the direction you saw it rolling, you dropped the ball and left it with others to handle it for you. Why would you ever walk out on such a significant issue. The least you could have done after stating you were unwilling to accept any alterations, was take the proposal with you when you walked out the door.
