The penny dropped: itSMF "members" are in fact shareholders.

The penny dropped. Finally I understand the gap between the behaviour of itSMF at the International level (and sometimes at the Chapter level), and the expectations of its members.

Comments pulled from the IT Skeptic blog

Readers will wonder where some comments went on this thread. Certain parties are invoking non-disclosure agreements to silence discussion about a Certain Topic. This is their right.
