19. Well, it kind of depends on what the actual matter is but unless it is trivia

but just something that personally grates then A is not an option under even the best circumstances.

B, I think needs to be a continuous effort even without a hint of corruption but for a lot of gray area/complex issues stuff that the majority of the public glazes over for B might be the only beneficial move.

C, is required if direct confrontation has been fruitless and the matter is beyond the pale then bust them out but I disagree with the ethical people resigning, it makes a statement but leaves the foxes to continue to overrun the hen house and if the tactic works then the board is starting from scratch without the benefit of the wisdom, commitment, and toughness of folks who stood by what is right and the experience that comes with it. Some of the new ones will fall for shit that leads to similar or worse problems that the good folks will see from a mile away now.

No, once you bust them out like that then you are at war in hostile territory and are needed on the front more than ever while you have publicly and on the record separated yourself from the shenanigans. You resign when that isn't much of an option unless you want to be a martyr.
