Another reason not to join the SFWA

I now qualify for associate member status in the SFWA, but every time I think about joining I read something like this post from Charles Stross. John Scalzi has a less enraged view of the matter, but my thought is why join an organization whose sole purpose appears to be creating continual tempests in a teapot among its members. I mean, there are already enough ways for life to distract me from writing without bringing in even more drama.
