I think this thread has gone its full length and should end, now.
My feelings about the transparency are not for malicious reasons, and there was no idea where this was leading, was not aware of peoples' individual roles in this.
Not interested in flame wars.
No personal opinion on the Originally Mentioned team sponsorship, if the Board has chosen that, okay by me.
... but the transparency, or the differing degrees of it and where it is best limited, are something I will be willing to discuss in a better way sometime along in the future.
Certainly not in this derailed thread.
