Two points should be made here:

1. Take a look at the posters discussing WTA Board politics on the 
ExI-chat list:  James Hughes, Mike Treader, Michael LaTorra, Giulio 
Prisco, Joseph Bloch, Jose Cordiero, Harvey Newstrom, Eliezer 
Yudkowski, etc.  Six WTA Board members and two former WTA Board 
members.  This is not some discussion of WTA board matters by non board 
members.  This is the WTA board fighting among itself in public again.

2. The two former Board members were not involved in this discussion 
until WTA Board members made claims about them by name.  We both posted 
to set the record straight about ourselves.  Max and Natasha likewise 
stayed out of this discussion until they were invoked by name.  You 
yourself posted what Natasha should do to stop this discussion, forcing 
her to respond to your statements in her name.  These people aren't 
causing problems for the WTA Board.  The WTA Board is causing problems 
for us.  If you want the conversations stopped, WTA Board members need 
to solve their problems themselves.  Asking people to ignore the 
problem and not talk about it isn't the solution.

(Goodbye again, until I am invoked again by name.)
