Pine, Given that the way James and the Board should relate to staff was one issue that lead to his removal, the situation in the wider WMF as an organization is highly relevant here.
Under normal, smoothly-functioning circumstances (and most of my 4 year tenure at WMF) there was little reason for non-executive staff to interact with the Board in a professional capacity. If that isn't the case and staff are trying to communicate with the Board directly a lot, it is smoke pointing to a burning fire somewhere.
