A surprising amount of staff turnover, and the relation between WMF and the
communities extremely eroded by a row of bad moves and general bad attitude.

I was told I'm too new to this, and it was worst during superprotect, but
it's still mind-boggling why what was supposed to be a symbiotic and happy
relation ends up being a sort of intermitent nightmare.

I guess that ultimately the fault and responsibility is ours, as a
community, for failing to elect BoT members in the last years more
competent in directing the ED and avoiding those situations (which, for the
most part, seem to be generally avoidable in an aftermath analysis, though
lessons seem to be hard to learn).

Best,
Paulo
