The intent is not to judge his opinions on OWS - to each their own, and
what he does professionally or personally is none of my business. The

alignment of the organization and in fact the way it reads, sounds as if
the actions taken were done so as an OWASP initiative.

level is typically excessive and, at best, leads to confusion about the
scope of individual roles within OWASP or, at worst, provides cover for
disingenuous statements and innuendo.
