Personally I haven't seen any evidence of a capture, least of all by
delusional people.  Could you be more specific please.  Such blanket
statements are a device used to limit repercussion whilst putting forward
abusive comments as a rule, I hope that is not the intention here.

The only thing that may paralyse the GA and DNSO is apathy, fortunately,
that is not evident in the GA.

I have noticed a tendency for those who disagree with the direction of a
discussion to claim the group has been hijacked or captured.  However, I
have rarely seen any evidence to support such claims.

This mailing list is a discussion group, it is only a focus point for the
work of the GA, the discussions here do not form the work of the GA.  The
output of the GA is formalised and I have not seen any evidence to suggest
your statements are correct.
