So basically what you're saying is because Jimbo Wales is busy running
things on the WMF board, then the userboxes should stay?

That's a pretty weak argument.

By your logic, if Jimbo can't write articles, why does he make us do them
and then get in trouble with the press when controversial issues arise? If
he can't do them himself, they should stay unwritten.
