Given, that nobody (minus two or three) is really comfortable with the
situation, a full re-election would be the cleanest way to escape it.

It would also be the fairest way for all candidates.

That's your opinion, but that's not written in any of our rules and would therefore not be clean at all! You also should not speak for the whole ambassador group (minus two or three)...
You can agree or not agree with FAmSCo's decision, but you cannot expect we will ever have a full consensus of 700 ambassadors.
FAmSCo cannot do anything more than following the rules we actually have, and although someone says this does not apply to the vacant seats rule, we had a Council decision which recommended to apply it, and we have a clear sentence in the wiki: "If FAmSCo does not have all its seats filled due to members leaving or other lack,..."
*other lack* means everything else, so that's the case here.

I think we replied to the request of clarifying the process and the outcome of our meetings and trac decisions, pointing you to all the sources we opened or discussed. We explained why we are applying these rules and cannot do anything more. Speculating about something which is not clearly written in our policies will only end up in an endless discussion. If we want to move forward and get back to business we needed to decide quickly, applying the rules we have. And that's what we did.
