Folks: are we still playing with this toy? I've sat here and watched this discourse – variously frivolous, slightly insulting, and embarrassing – and said nothing in the hope it would just fizzle away.
But amazingly, it's still here. We have to accept that while crowdsourcing is the genius of Wikipedia and a few of its sister projects, it's totally inappropriate for choosing the executive director of a big, prominent Foundation that lives in a competitive, complex, and often negative jungle. There's a bunch of reasons for doing this largely away from the gaze of the rest of the world. Do I really need to spell them out? It would be good to move on to more useful and practical topics.
