[OSList] : Regarding OST in OAA

I'm posting this again, here.  It is a public announcement of intent, to 
be perfectly clear about the intended use of Open Space in the Open 
Agile Adoption (OAA) method:

Can invitation be used to persuade, or even manipulate? Yes, it can. 
Persuasion does not quite feel like manipulation, perhaps because it can 
and often is presented as a kind of invitation.

And that is why there is an explicit prohibition in Open Agile Adoption 
that says:

    Attempting to use invitation (and specifically the inviting Open
    Space meeting format) to persuade, convince, or otherwise influence
    anyone to do anything in an Agile adoption without their explicit
    consent is not in alignment with the spirit, purposes and intent of
    the Open Agile Adoption technique.
