I completely agree with you. I'm disappointed in how several of these RfBs
have turned out, but most especially Riana's and Neil's (pre-civility
incident). Riana nominating Kelly Martin has absolutely nothing to do with
how she would perform as a bureaucrat. It's not as if she would go
completely rouge and promote a candidate with KM's percentage level. There's
a similar issue with Neil's; people are opposing him because of his stance
on re-confirmation RfAs; but do we not trust him to either vote oppose and
recuse himself from closing, or close according to consensus regardless of
his personal feelings?
