Let me see. I am exercising power by what? When did you
see a post from me refusing anything? And what makes you think
I have the power to do anything? The fact that there are no
women on the board almost certainly reflects male dominance in
society, including a lot of academia, but you seem to be asserting
it is a plot of all the list members. It's not, it's just a
'circumstance', not a deliberate decision.
What differences do you see if there were women members of the
board, by the way?
