Why did you reply to this thread if you didn't want to talk about this
publicly? You can't just say "Disregard" and expect that no one else will
comment on this commandment.

I told Tom that I agreed with the proposal, so it's 4 out of 5.

Your humble opinion aside, decisions do not require a unanimous vote of the
board. The bylaws of Noisebridge don't say it does and have never said
that. "Naomi does not agree" is not "the board does not agree".
