I cannot help it, but WTF are you talking about? In the beginning of this 
discussion, *specific* things were talked about, where Haiku could be more 
open. In the course of the discussion, you exaggerated your argument to the 
point that Haiku the project was completely closed until very recently?!? There 
are numerous examples for how things where decided right in the open. For 
example, future development of Haiku was discussed openly in the Glass Elevator 
project (so much for closed "roadmap"). Another example is the Icon contest. 
There are many more examples. I'm sorry to say this, but in the course of 
argueing your position, you completely lost touch with reality.

Best regards,
