The Wikimedia Foundation Board elections 2009 were underway in late July 2009. Some analysts have tried to predict how the voting will conclude, even before the polls close on August 10, 2009. Many of the trustee candidates have no idea how mismanaged is the Wikimedia Foundation, with only the founder of MyWikiBiz seeming to have the courage to point out that 39 Stillman Street in San Francisco is not exercising best practices in non-profit governance and isn't running a clean shop.

Judging from this data, it is possible that the answers provided by Gregory Kohs will help him achieve a stunning Pyrrhic victory by coming in fifth place in the election.
