Hi Simon,

I am indicating that questions about development plans and intentions fall outside the scope of 
questions for Board candidates as regards their suitability for election, as the role of 
directors[1] does not include development tasks. I'm inviting you to note that observation and 
save your valid but out-of-scope question for later. I am not censoring you at this point as I 
hope you will choose to desist voluntarily.

I have put my questions to the candidates. I am hoping that they are
going to answer.

I object to your arbitrary judgement that my questions are out of scope.

They are perfectly reasonable, perfectly friendly and perfectly
courteous questions, in response to an invitation to ask questions.

I hope you are not going to blemish this first election with
thoughtlessness and unnecessary declarations that go against the
freedom of expression that the bylaws stand for.

It would have been so much simpler if the candidates had been allowed
to answer for themselves.
