I do assume that people have been following the payment processing discussion but I also
assumed that they would find these developments important enough to see that there is no
way we can just move on from this point.
I repeat my statement which I made at Wikimania: I am very happy that the chapters are
moving towards a Chapters Association which will hopefully play a very constructive role
in situations like this. I am disappointed that the Association isn't farther along
the road because that could have been very helpful at this point. The chapters are an
essential part of the movement and if the foundation is forced into this kind of
relationship with chapters all the time it will keep us achieving our goals and working

What I find puzzling in your reasoning is that
you automatically assume bad
faith on the part of the WMF.
I find it puzzling that you assume that people aren't generally aware
of the long and acrimonous discussions of payment processing over the
past year, and quite surprised that you are puzzled that people put
this in the context of that.
