Are there any specific reasons that the Foundation
neutral on any topic, economic, political, or otherwise, which clearly
impacts the readership or community?
Well, off the top of my head: to avoid compromising the appearance of
the projects and the movement as neutral providers of information; to
avoid bad publicity; to avoid antagonizing governments or corporate
interests; to avoid compromising the Foundation's tax-exempt status;
to avoid fragmenting the resources and attention of the movement; to
avoid creating divisions within the projects and the movement that
would make it more difficult for volunteers to work together.

Let me be bold and suggest that around 99% of the people on this list
disagree with the percentages you keep making up.
