trying to accommodate you and every other critic. And I will continue to
bend over even more:
you are not bending over backwards (if ever there were a metaphor in need
of being taken out back and shot, it's "bending over backwards"), you're
barely considering anyone's actual words and moving forward with all you're
doing at as brisk a pace as possible.

>Kevin keeps declaring that the board doesn't have the support of the
membership because we didn't win with a -large enough- majority.
for example, this repeated claim of goalpost moving (another tortured
metaphor, poor thing) as if turnout wasn't fifty percent and the process
want called out as being rushed and too quiet by people who are not kevin.
as if mitch hasn't just voiced his own concerns, on list, which he'd
already voiced to you privately.you keep speaking as though only one or two
people object when that is clearly not the case -- this mischaracterizes
the opposition entirely, and doing so while claiming you're going through
so many pains to move the conversation forward is nothing short of
emotionally manipulative. that is unethical and that is acting in bad
faith.you can stop anytime.
