James, I agree you have little choice but to publish the facts in the light of Jimmy Wales' abysmal behaviour.
For those that do not watch Wales' user talk page, yesterday evening he posted: "James has made a lot of noise about why he was dismissed which is utter and complete bullshit. He wrote a nice piece for the Signpost about transparency which implied that the board got rid of him for wanting more transparency. Utter fucking bullshit."  The WMF board of trustees has reached an all time low when one of their members is free to show leadership for our community by behaving like an angry teenage bully. Patricio, please be seen to put your house in order today, not in a vague future world. If you have no authority to put a stop to this uncivilized fat-headed behaviour or your board is stuck in paralysed through over analysis and PR/legal advisors, then step down as chair and put your weight behind a public call for the independent governance review that everyone else but the trustees can see is needed. The vote of no confidence is today at 221 support votes to 17 opposed for Geshuri to be leave the board, and the comments on that page capture how terribly badly the board of trustees is perceived by the majority of the community.
