Experience is valuable but no one is indispensable. That's also how corporations operate since decades. There should be no excuse that experience should give someone the right being a jerk. Also, if "hoarding" could be also defined as letting rot loaned boards for years, then we'll have a winner. An trust me, i, as an end-user, couldn't care less about if there are two boards or two-hundred boards dumped each year. What i care for are the common accusations against people outside of the usual MAME circle/suspects.
