I can think of one case where seeing the social interactions between
an applicant and board members in a meeting *should* have put up big
red flags around that applicant. Apparently they weren't big enough,
but he's gone now, and you can probably guess who I mean. Those red
flags, if they were being noticed, would have been the usefully
"social" part of the meeting.
