Or to have the stance as stated. Just because you don't like it the
stance is still there. And just because it's not loud or infuriating it
still is a statement. Plus there was action taken (which you did not
mention for whatever reason).
What 'action taken'?
From the meeting minutes:
"* For the time being, sponsorship is suspended"
This is not an action. "For the time being" makes it clear that the
suspension is temporary, and I assume will be reassessed as soon as the
promised action by Neal and Simon bears fruit...assuming that AI is
actually acted on.
Ok, maybe this part of the minutes wasn't worded the best. The actual
decision was to suspend sponsorship until we believe that the issues
that lead to our suspending of sponsorship are resolved, to date that
hasn't happened yet.
Personally I believe that the act of withdrawing all future sponsorship
sends a stronger message to the main people we need to send a message to
being the FSF Board then any statement or words that we may say. I can
understand that you or others may have a different opinion on that, I
also understand that there are a significant number of other
organizations that are not in the position of having donated to the FSF
or one of there events in the recent past and as such I can understand
them feeling the need to signal there disapproval in other ways.
