I agree that it may seem outrageous to some, but disagree that it is untrue.

It is so by design:
"Membership is determined by nomination and vote by current members of
HOT." ( [1] )

Thank you. One of Frederik's comment was that the post sounded like PR
discourse (which may be fine, depending on its intent). A way to
substantiate this was to take a falsifiable statement and show its
distance from reality.

You mean that HOT can only be used as an example for "management
lessons" to the OSM-F board, but that possible problems stemming from
this management style are off topic? Fine.


(banging his head against the wall for so stupidly still caring so much
about OSM that he had to get involved in this).
