Fallacy of the excluded middle. In any case that doesn't change the fundamental problem. The only formal mechanism the wider community of editors has to control the activities of the foundation is via the nominal community seats on the board. Things in that respect are pretty bad. We've lost our apparently most effective member and the replacement is currently doing pet rock impressions. In more recent times the only practical level of control the board has exercised is appointing the ED. If they are given that up the wider community no longer has any formal mechanisms of control left. While that may not be the intent of the WMF employees it is where we are. -- geni _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
