[Osmf-talk] How to vote to match your view

   I would like to point out that if someone wanted to get rid of one or
more directors, they could simply call for a resolution to remove those

Such a resolution would only require a >50% majority, and therefore be
much more likely to succeed than a change of the Articles of
Association, which requires a >75% majority.

So if removing Henk and/or Oliver was indeed, as you seem to say, the
main goal of this then it could be achieved in an easier way. (Of
course, putting myself in the shoes of someone who leaves the board - I
would much prefer to leave because I've hit a term limit than leaving
because I was recalled by the members!)

Certainly someone who is in favour of term limits will likely also be in
favour of asking those who have already overstayed these limits to step
down - otherwise it would be a little bit unfair, wouldn't it? And
should the decision about the limits take into account who exactly is
affected, or should one try to make the decision based on the merits of
the proposal alone, without reading personal warfare into it?

It is very likely that at *any* point in the future, if we are to
implement term limits, they will affect some people more than others;
*any* implementation of term limits in the future can very likely be
constructed as being "against" someone (namely whoever is over or close
to the limit at the time).

So we might as well do it now.
