There seems to be a very specific definition of “decentralized” behind this letter. Some folk appear to take this to mean “free from human influence”. As recent events show that is difficult for any but the most trivial cases.
I am not arguing against the case presented, i still have far to much to learn about what is being built, but would love to see references to existing write-ups or new write-ups that explain what you guys expected out of the project when you first became involved, and what you are expecting (or hoping) for the future given what we are learning as these various projects progress.
I hope this is not misconstrued, perhaps community members can also chime in, but it would also help me to understand if this is the position of Swarm as a group or if it is individual opinion. Either is fine of course.
