Now with that being said, I'll pose the question-If there was no Talkboard, who would make decisions on changes? There needs to be some form of governing body to do that
I agree with you 100%.

And the idea is that TB is made up of what all users can and should see as regular people/regular FTers who were elected by FTers. That way, the TB appears valid and transparent as best as possible.

I would trust an entity that is designed in this way. Heck I have been for many years now no matter the level of my involvement with all things FT
