Who are appointing these board members - Jabber.com???

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the efforts of the people of
Jabber.com. However no one entity should have this much weight on council
or board influence.

I noticed yesterday when Stephen Lee posted his comments that the first
e-mails returned were from Jabber.com employees and they refered to other
employees comments. It is and will be very hard to believe the b____ that
this employees are all their own persons and their paycheck does not
influence their decisions.

You would think that the people at jabber.com would have realized the
concerns that the membership at large would have and correct the situation
before it went this far.
