Ofcourse you wouldn't see it, but still, as this issue kept dragging on, things came to light and most of us here do not agree at all with the outcome...James was elected by the community, he was not another random person the community did not trust or hear of before being added to the board which actually includes 5 of the sitting BoT members none of whom actually have any knowledge on the basic fundamentals of the project so to fire someone who understands this and has given all to the project is downright silly....Again, its quite sad that they are dragging this on, it has been a few days now and we still have yet to get a clear answer and thus why all the conspiracy theory is floating around...Surely James should not be apologising for doing something right but as per my earlier comment, he seems to be the 'scapegoat' for something much bigger...the main question, What exactly did he do that he got fired?.
