Being bold has different implications when you're at the leadership of  
a multi million dollar nonprofit organization, rather than trying to  
make a controversial edit to an article. When you make an edit to an  
article, it can be reverted. But bold changes like this by the board  
cannot be so easily undone, if the damage from them can even be undone  
at all, and the "bold, revert, discuss, assume good faith" argument  
does not apply here.

But apparently, assuming good faith does not apply to people who  
criticize the critics either.
