Mozilla Contra Meritocracy (Or 'Meritocracy')

So we're told that "This proposal does not seek to change how Mozilla is governed, only how we talk about how Mozilla is governed, which may be reasonably be regarded as contentious."
   Fucking nominalism. It's a derangement of the modern mind. It's not as deranged as relativism (or its crack-brained younger brother, social constructionism) which hold[s], even more insanely, that merely speaking differently can actually alter reality, of course. And stupid, merely nominal changes are generally better than stupid, actual changes. But one of the biggest problems in this radioactive swamp is the inability to really, clearly separate the real from the nominal--and keep them separated.
