Hi fellow members,

I am curious what candidates to the board think about this decision. I
know there was the existing questions, but this is a new topic which
came up recently. But if you're a candidate for the board, and you have
an opinion on this, I'd like to hear, and I'm sure other members would
too. How would you vote if you were on the board now? What
do you think? Please don't be afraid to say something publicly (here,
the wiki, user diaries, etc).
