I can't speak for anyone but Mike, but I don't believe Mike's request was a
troll; I think he was genuine in his desire to join the Foundation in order
to run for the board. I cannot speak for the board, but the concern I would
have with Mike joining the board is that Mike has repeatedly acted in ways
that work against the OSM project, including telling falsehoods about the
project in public, started a competing project, and (despite being not to
many times) using the OSM lists as a mechanism for recruitment for his fork
There might be other reasons in addition to those above, of course, but I
don't want to go off my memory without specific incidents in mind.
As I said earlier, I cannot speak to the specifics of the board decision on
this, but if I were in their position, I would certainly be very concerned
about him, especially given his past statements and actions that have
specifically been anti-OSM and anti-OSMF in nature.
