To my understanding there *has* been a lot of discussion of this -
just not within the English mailing lists...which is quite
understandable as really it's not belonging there.

Severin has actioned something which I think no-one can seriously say
is a bad thing & is being publically rapped across the knuckles for
doing this in way which someone thinks isn't quite appropriate.

I read this as a top-down organisation where grassroots action is
actively discouraged...this may reflect HOT Inc, but I hope doesn't
reflect the wider HOT community...

HOT Inc yes, the members list yes, the wider HOT community, I would argue not.
