[Osmf-talk] Did GlobalLogic just admit guilt?

Hello fellow members,

In the February 2019 OSMF board meeting, there was an interesting item.
GlobalLogic has "offered to withdraw the 100 OSMF signups", which the
board obviously accepted.[1]

But, GlobalLogic is only able to "withdraw the 100 members" if they
control those OSMF members, right? So does that mean that those members
didn't join voluntarily, and were always under the direction of the
company? i.e. Has GlobalLogic admitted that those 100 sign-ups weren't
real members, that they tried to "buy"/control 100 votes?

If these members are voluntary members, then the Foundation must not
cancel someone's membership just because their employer asked.

And I think this now directly contradict the only public statement from
GlobalLogic on this matter?[2]
