Yes, right - we all could witness how it looks like when you discuss 
something while staying out of the decision making process.

The way you can productively contribute to this is to acknowledge that 
others largely perceive the reality very differently than you do and 
that their perception is not any less valid than yours.  

You have at least half a dozen people in this thread - and many more in 
the wider discussion beyond that - who perceive business and 
organizational involvement in the OSMF very differently - and that 
includes both pure hobbyists and people with an own business 
involvement.  You can either try to ignore that (but then you can't 
have a working communication with any of these people on the matter - 
let alone resolving misunderstandings) or you can accept and 
acknowledge their different perception, listen and learn - and argue 
without taking your own perception as granted.
