Dear Siko,

I was trying to phrase something like this, but you beat me to it.  This
discussion gives me hope.

Thank you to Ori, Dan, Brion, and other staff for sharing your thoughts
over the past days, and dispelling some of the mystery and uncertainty.

To the board, please engage.  We are in this together, and depend on one
another.  Have an honest conversation with the staff and community about
the immediate problems, let us find a way forward.  Dariusz, don't fall
silent – we need your perspective.

More to be said here, but first: I hope you will finish this thought.
