The removal of a community elected member whiteout a community consultation is a scandal. I can see nothing which justifies a immediately removal (such as unlawful behavior). A scandal.
That James was replaced with Geshuri, who was involved in a scandal is yet a other scandal. IMHO Geshuri schould be removed from the Board ASAP (if it is true what was wrote about him on media - even in non english media) to restore the trust of the community. If the Board is ignoring Community voice, then we have to start a formal procedure (RFC, Open letter) to remove Mr. Geshuri. Or to start a re-election. I am highly disappointed . Trust is broken. :-( With best regards, Steinsplitter > To: email@example.com > From: m...@anderswennersten.se > Date: Sat, 9 Jan 2016 12:12:34 +0100 > Subject: Re: [Wikimedia-l] WMF trustee Arnnon Geshuri and part in > anticompetitive agreements in Google > > Very good point Chris. > > I also think it would be good to remember that WMF transformation from > the "Superprotect disaster" to a very much appreciated 2015 Community > Wishlist Survey.
