Andreas, et al

On 23 March, Jimmy stated:[1]

"Still waiting to see if the board allows another board member to
publish something that will then allow me to publish further.  But I
did publish something on my user talk page that is relevant."

We are now exactly one month down the track and there is still no
response from Jimmy.

At this juncture the following need to be addressed:

1) Can the board confirm whether Jimmy has in fact made such enquiry?
When? And with whom?

2) In the instance of enquiry by Jimmy being made, can that enquiry
from Jimmy be published? Assuming of course that the enquiry itself
doesn't contain "sensitive" information that needs to be withheld.

3) Can the board explain why one month after Jimmy says he is "still
waiting" for direction that direction has not been forthcoming.

For the community to move forward these issues can NOT simply be
allowed to fade into distant memory. This is moreso needed given the
disgraceful email Jimmy sent to James and Pete Forsyth, and Jimmy's
equally disgraceful "utter fucking bullshit" attack on James.

At this point any response which doesn't answer these questions
satisfactorily needs to be taken as Jimmy and/or the Board hoping the
issue will simply go away; in which case the whole lot of you should
resign in order for real community healing to take place.

Warm regards,


Ruslan Takayev
