James thinks I resigned, even though I have always denied it.

Mike thinks the board asked me to leave, even though James has always
This is why I ask endless questions. Different board members still
disagree about whether the board did or did not take some official
action. How can they not remember or agree on what happened on the
board? How can the records be of no help in answering these questions?
How can there be no minutes or disputed minutes? How can we tell
which claimed official actions are real and which ones aren't. When
board members violently disagree on basic truths, how can members
determine the truth? And how can these same questions be unanswered
year after year?
