Come on now. If OM can only respond with hostile ad hominems to IMHO valid critisism,
then I fear for the life of this 'community'.

Without solid leadership this community will fragment (which, to some degree, it already
has) and lose momentum. And that is hard to regain.

And to stay with the museum/gallery metaphor; If you don't use high quality paint and
canvas, it'll all fade away quickly.
