There are many people who could make a valuable contribution to this 
advisory board. You apparently have yours and I do not even know Sunir 
Shah.There are other people on this board that I do not really know 
either. I have some people that I would like to see included.

The point is not who is not on it, the point is are the people on this 
list complementary in stead of all being in the same mould. When this is 
a great list of people, celebrate them. When there are people who are 
complementary, suggest them in a nice, even private way. Your 
indignation does not work for me, quite the contrary.
