This is irredeemable rubbish.
I have come to the conclusion that the most public defenders of the W3C
are the W3C's own worst PR nightmare. Now I would prefer more openness in
the W3C, but I'm not W3C curmudgeon to the extent that, say Simon is,
though I respect his view.
Nevertheless, I've observed that whenever this debate comes up in certain
fora, some of the W3C's defenders always seem to fall back to personal
attacks on their opponents or deprecation of the work of other
Curmudgeon variously means grasping, avaricious, crusty, ill-tempered. To be
fair to Simon I haven't seen him behave in any of these ways when raising
valid issues re W3C.
I agree with you that it would be good to see more openness in the W3C. I
would also like to see better quality i.e. clearer communication from W3C
which addresses a broader audience.
