Do we really need to revisit this point again.

I have said several times here and elsewhere an OSMF member questioning 
the board's decisions and demanding transparency of said decisions has 
nothing to do with trust, it is the obligation of the OSMF members 
mandated by the law to supervise the board in their work.

Basing the interaction between the board and the members fully on trust 
is IMO diametral to an open and diverse community because it favours 
classical old-boy networks of people who know and trust each other and 
it is prone to lead to clientelism and corruption.
