Perhaps saying this again helps: people are confused.
Herding cats comes to mind. Herding a few cats is difficult. Herding
700+ is daunting. Herding 700+ confused ones...
I have the feeling that a large number of people are confused by lack
of information. Anthony has been sending mails to d-d-a where he
somehow says "we are here now and that is where we want to go next."
People see that and say "ok, that's clear." Some weeks later someone
asks "we were over there and wanted to go that way... where are we now
exactly? And why?" The way I perceive it, it's simple lack of
information made accessible to people.
If one writes a FAQ and people keep asking the same questions, either
people are not reading the FAQ or the A's in the FAQ are not clear
enough. Same thing here.
