I never wanted to bring this whole issue to the public by posting about
it on foundation-list. Unfortunately, Philip brought this up during the
election and I do believe that it was important that there is some
follow up as public attention had been drawn to the issue already.

You are not addressing my comment, as I said, issues with how the board operates and suggestions/concerns are perfectly fine to discuss publicly. That was not my point and you know it.

In letting your concerns and frustrations turn into an excuse to personally attack Philip is not acceptable, you are unfairly alienating:
- Him individually, despite his efforts as a volunteer doing his best to fulfil his duties as a board member.
- The board
- The whole community by turning a position in the board as something that may risk yourself having to deal with the kind of comment you just used.

Something for you to think about, what incentives does anybody have to run for the board if they have to deal with comments like that when people are not happy when things are not done the way they want to?

I would encourage you to, instead of justifying yourself as you just did, apologize to Philip and the board for the sake of not just keeping things civil, but also to ensure that other people feel safe when running to the board in upcoming elections.
