Do you see the discrepancy in your reply ? Please stop
now, Sarah. The outcome
simply means that 88.4% of the membership does not support the petition, so
trusts the current board. Where nobody campaigned for the 88.4% and you and
yours intensively campaingned to get the 20% needed on various platforms (
I've been mostly silent about that topic but rereading some claims
repeatedly I need to comment.
I didn't support the petition but sorry I do also not really trust the
board (completely). The other option was just the worse.
So please stop claiming that 88.4% of the community "trusts the board".
The petition lost because it's how it works. When I see the reaction
from some board members how they now feel more self-confident as before,
sorry to say: There is no reason for that.
There certainly is a certain degree of distrust in the board and it
really should work on regaining its trust moving forward!
