I don't know who wrote it, nor do I really care to know.
All I ask is, whoever you are, please stop accusing me of this collusion and conspiracy. I have never had any of these conversations, would never, and don't appreciate the implication. It's hurtful and rather upsetting.
I have the upmost respect for Naomi, spinach, and all those who have expressed concerns about the actions of the board, which is why I am 100% behind reverting the changes until further discussion is had.
Someone else on this list (who I'm not sure if I've met or not) suggested the meeting on Monday at Noisebridge West and I readily agreed.
