I suppose there are a lot of people who don't contribute here and now, because they already spent too much time for the puppet master.
As long as they are convinced their work benefits @Phoenix/@JordanLee more than anyone else, I see no reason for that to change.
Another explanation could be: there are not so many unknown major shareholders.
The distribution of BKS was completely intransparent.
That brings BCE in a situation similar to Nu, but without controversial motions to tell the good from the bad.
For Nu a fork migh help to kickstart the community.
For BCE I have no idea.
