Your perception is not reality. ORG consists of people from across a wide specturm of experiences and ways of both understanding and enjoying the sport of baseball. More to the point, there's been people voted into ORG who don't always agree with everybody. There's been people voted in who bring a new or different angle to the conversation. There was plenty of discussion focused directly on the idea of avoiding "group think" from developing.
Boss and GIK have graciously allowed us to police what is their board. That is generous in my opinion. They could have just as easily said, "these folks are in, these are out, and there will be no changes ever". Instead they gave members of RZ a role in creating the community we call all spend countless hours enjoying.
