Issue 1: There is a finite amount of people in the D'niverse community willing to step up and Do Things.
Issue 2: There are things that Could Be Done, often more numerous than the aformentioned people.
Issue 3: The D'niverse Community is Allergic to Initiative.
Issue 4: People who Take Charge are viewed with suspicion.
Issue 5: Commitment and Follow Through are not always priorities.
All of these snowball together to create a dynamic in the community of people spreading themselves too thin, burning out, things not getting completed, or people not taking charge of a project, and it flounders for lack of direction.
