I appreciate that you have responded to the community outcry, though I fear that the flowery rhetoric was not only lost on me, it also seems to be obfusacting on the serious matters raised. The substantial matters themselves rated a direct mention or a skerrick of acknowledgement.
I believe that the community has clearly expressed that while you may have a significant HR/P&C background, the dark shadow that you drag into the Wikimedia is not one which a sizeable proportion of interested and knowledgeable participants believes outweighs a clear, untarnished integrity  From your people management background, you cannot seriously have us believe that And you may be the fall guy / scapegoat / ...for the board's short-sighted appointment / inexacting process / evident lack of diligence; however, that may be the role that you need to take so that the Board can get the clear air to regain the trust that it has lost. Until that time we peasants may well be revolting. Who knows, this time maybe we can create a white-out, rather than a black-out. Risk-denial, risk-blindness and obstinacy are not traits that I see as valuable in members of boards. Further, I believe that there would surely be candidates with similar people management credentials who don't have the dead weight. That they may not have worked for Google, be male, or be in the Bay area may be a problem, ... oh no ... maybe not! Be pragmatic, it is clearly time for pragmatism. Please resign, as at this time the hole has been dug by you and others has broken through to the other side you have no base, there is no real return.
