Indeed.  And with good cause: this Board has amply demonstrated that
it wouldn't recognize a threat if it was standing in front of them
with a subpoena.

I have no reason to believe that any of you -- except Michael and
perhaps Kat -- have any competency at all in judging threats.  I've
watched the various members of this Board run around like chickens
reacting to the events of the day.  You can't even decide how to hold
your meetings or how to present a unified face; it's perfectly
reasonable to conclude that you've no idea what the threats to the
organization are.

In short, I have no confidence in this Board.  I would vote all of you
-- excepting Michael and Kat, who I think are actually capable and
intelligent people, and Jan-Bart, who seems competent but whom I have
insufficient experience to judge -- out of the Board, for abject
failure to perform your duties in a timely and conscientious fashion.
