[extropy-chat] I don't need an umbrella

I feel a bit uncomfortable about ExI being described as an "affiliated
organization" under the "umbrella" of WTA. This gives a certain hint
of dominance and inferiority, as if ExI were a vassal of WTA. Clearly,
WTA is not an umbrella organization, since it is actively pursuing its
own agenda rather than acting as a clearinghouse for collaboration
between various transhumanist groups. And, from a number of recent
posts I gather that it does not have an equitable relationship with
SIAI, ImInst, and ExI, not to mention the Transtopians.

I wonder if ExI should more explicitly disavow being a sub-group under
WTA 's aegis.
