Oh, I see.

1.) A director gets flack because they do nothing about a
narrow mode segment and the problems the lack of a narrow
mode segment causes. They know bandplans work, so they can't
understand the need for a rule.

2.) The same director then violates a bandplan or
Gentleman's agreement, and gets flack for doing that.

3.) Because he gets flack for not having a narrow mode
segment when he knows everyone follows bandplans, and then
worse yet he gets flack for violating an informal agreement
and being yelled at for doing it, the proper course is for
him to blame the people trying to use the band that doesn't
have segments because the ARRL doesn't want us to have

Did I follow that correctly? Or did I miss something?
Who was that director?
