In the past, FTDNA seems to have acted as if they believe that the
projects belong principally to the administrators and not the
participants. Except in cases of outright abandonment, I am not
aware of many cases in which FTDNA has replaced or removed an
administrator without that person's consent.

If you are dissatisfied with the way the project is run, and the
administrator is hostile to any changes, then I think your best
option is to start or join a competing project (as Sharon
suggested) . There is no need to remove yourself from the Bryant
project if you join the O'Brien one, by the way.

Perhaps if enough Bryant members wrote to FTDNA and expressed their
dissatisfaction then a compromise could be brokered, but I'd view
that as a unlikely event.
