Exactly my point. There has been a total disregard for the load down
procedures as I have echoed over and over again. The actions of the board
is beginning to generate misconceptions of a sinister plot due to lack of
regard for the clear laid down procedures. This actions will give room for
future arguments using the current lack of adherence as reference points. I
think this announcement is hasty and sounds more like a stamped enforcement.
