The Bitcoin foundation serves as a figure head for the Bitcoin community, one of the purposes being to educate and build trust in the protocol. It is often cited by the mainstream press who look to the foundation to provide guidance and comment.

Mark Karpeles, CEO Of Mt Gox has continually proven himself to be incompetent, causing fear in the community and damaging the trust signals that Bitcoin relies on so as to be taken seriously. 

Aside from the countless other issues that Mt Gox has encountered over the previous years, this week Mark Karpeles irresponsibly released information stating that the issues the company were facing with withdrawals were due to "A bug in the Bitcoin software" something which was disputed by Gavin Andresen:

Further to this, despite having been questioned this morning, Mark refused to comment on the status of customer's money, instead leaving the customer who'd travelled all the way from The UK to wait outside in the snow. This is not the behaviour that we should expect from a board member!

We would like him to be removed from his position on the board and all association with Mt Gox to be removed from the Bitcoin Foundation website.
