Poll to follow. Assume you could verify without exposing your identity to the whole board, and leave aside logistics, and questions of when this might be requested and when it would not be needed.
I would. It seems to me if I want to use some aspect of my life ( such as profession or some life experience) as a basis for adding weight to my answer, I should be willing to support that.
Also, if. I am asking for sympathy or help, and am asked to verify the circumstance, I would be willing to do that.
I can imagine practical problems, though, as well as objections on principle.
