Is "position" their position to reinstate RMS, or their position as a member of the board? Is this intentionally "consider" as opposed to "reconsider"? If so, is that intended to be a weaker form of reconsider?No, and no. "To consider one's position" in business and politics is a (probably rather English) euphemism; being invited to consider your position is a clear indication that you ought to be resigning over some matter.
Thanks for clarifying. I'm an en-US speaker and I was not familiar with that (possibly en-GB) euphemism.
