Nuno has confirmed that he was being sarcastic, which was also how I
read that message right away.
On top of that, I interpreted their message as expressing doubt that a
single member of that cohort was joining OSMF on their own free will.

Years ago in this region there was a problem when stolen passports were
used to register companies, take loans etc.
If a stolen (coerced through the company) identity is used as a vehicle
for OSMF, are the individual behind the identity any less of an
individual, or having sinister reasons? Surely not, and that should not
detract from the main topic - the identity thief.
