Can you elaborate on the intended meaning here? 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

Thanks for clarifying. I'm an en-US speaker and I was not familiar with that (possibly en-GB) euphemism.
