My links mentioned three persons. Obviously at this point, Robin and Roko are not going to become insiders in an FAI construction project. If you could assure me that the third linked person will not be an insider either, it would relieve a lot of my worries.

The relevance of my links was to point out that when intelligent people with strong opinions get involved together in important projects with the future of mankind at stake, keeping everyone happy and focused on the goal may be difficult. Especially since the goal has not yet been spelled out and no one seems to want to work on clarifying the goal since it is apparently so damned disruptive to even talk about it.
