I've already answered that question (se above). The answer is still the

I have no idea why, but a good guess is that they -- like so many others --
think that this is a popularity contest.

People who wants the FTSC to remain a toothless tiger should make sure that
nobody with outspoken opinions, who is not afraid to call things with it's
proper name of fear to become unpopular, should vote no to any such candidate.

And vice versa of course...

Michiel's integrity is in my opinion way above any doubt, so I have
absolutely no problem with that.

If you, on the other hand, have problems with it, how come you didn't object
two years ago, when *you* were a candidate? The situation then was exactly the
same as now.
