The board has talked about this, *not* out of some wicked idea, but because it was asked to many times.
Yes, *asked for* by the Users and the Community, for a long time, now.
And this has nothing, *absolutely* noting to do with what the board "wants". Read the board pages in the wiki and you'll see the board has no authority to act except when asked for. Can we please have that illusion out of the world and these suggestions over and done with.
The Board is *not* allowed to dictate to the Community, and it *does not*! The Board represents the wishes of the Community -- this is why they are elected and not appointed -- and acts according to the wishes of the majority. When they do not, it is because it is something the Board cannot do anything about. Simple as that.
And whilst doing so also stop mentioning individual board member names, since the board operates as a team.
