For the record, I made sure to include two brand new members in my reply to that thread. But I'm not going to go on and on about this, because it might be considered disruptive.
I understand that staff has the final say in matters pertaining to the board. I've expressed my opinions on this matter, and I'm done now.
But what would be the cumulative effect if people kept posting in the thread? One post from one member isn’t the problem, it is a wider pattern expressed by a larger group. This got closed before it could get to that.
