People are afraid that the Board is forgetting why it exists.

I am somewhat perturbed by the reaction here.

Perhaps this was not the best approach for the Board to restructure
its membership, but to leap from that to the assumed bad faith a
number of participants here have expressed is highly disturbing.

This has not been an episode of healthy skepticism.  I assume that
everyone has the overall projects' best interests in mind, but the
level of distrust is disturbing, and does not evidently stem primarily
or originally from the actual chapters select two of the board members

Why has this been simmering off in the wings?  What are people
actually upset about?
