Indeed, it should be seen as a vote of no-confidence, and as such 
provides an ideal opportunity for the Interim Board to dip their toes 
in open, Internet-style communication.

An emergency *virtual* meeting of the board could be convened, 
wherein comments can not only be addressed to, but answered by, 
them. At the end of the day, those who succeed in achieving the 
quality and quantity of responses expected by the Interrnet 
community could be considered as having gained a mandate for an 
additional year.
