Two things to clarify:
a) I've been corrected in private mail - Robert's not on the board.
b) Even if he was, I wasn't trying to imply that the current board, er,
committee (Sorry, I'm on horrifically lagged SSH), is unfit for
the job, or was elected shonkily.

It's not, and the board has my full confidence and support, if no-one
