    Board election is a great farce… exclusion from paying competitors. Very very bad!

      The board has decided to not grant OSM Foundation membership to 2 individuals who’s behavior are clearly disruptive and not respectful; and who’s membership fee were paid for by a third party.
      Within the OSM Foundation there is ample room for discussion; in a civil and respectful way.
