Whether you think the requirement is valid or not, the requirement is listed in the election procedures. You clearly understood the requirement and somewhat accepted it because you claimed to be a resident of the Seychelles in your self-nomination. Since that statement was a misrepresentation in order to gain a material advantage (the very definition of fraud), I stand by my statement.

I find accusations of non-transparency coming from someone who attempted to hide his residency status from the community questionable at best.

It seems to have worked here.

Yes... To others, the result is the important thing. From our perspective, the process worked and the desired result (a slate of qualified candidates) was achieved. The process complaints of an unqualified candidate who feels that his lack of qualification was detected by means he doesn't like pretty much come out sounding like a simple case of sour grapes.

If they were wrong, perhaps you have a legitimate beef. Since they were correct, I have trouble thinking that anyone owes you an apology. Rather, I think you owe the community an apology for the colossal amount of time you have wasted with this issue.

If you want the last word, be my guest. I am done with this discussion and my points have been made.
