I remember vaguely.
As I said previously, there's nothing in the current rules that forbids
this kind of mass joining but at the same time there is a provision that
the board has to accept membership applications so they are within their
right if they don't; one could even say: If the current rules say that
membership applications have to be accepted by the board then that
implies that they must act with a certain diligence - otherwise, why
would the rules involve the board at all?
To all those who strongly criticize the current board action - try to
put yourself into their situation. If they had simply rubber-stamped the
membership applications and someone dug that out later, after the
election - would that not have caused an equal number of complaints?
I think we should use this as an example to help us shape the new AoA so
that they explicitly say what is ok and what isn't. - Maybe that was the
intention in the first place ;)
