I think this is indeed the point. :-)  From my perspective though, even if
someone had erroneously believed that paying a supporter contribution made
them a member of the FSFE e.V., it doesn't mean they automatically become one
if we recognize this.

At most, they would be able to claim restitution for false representation.
It does not affect the status of our supporters in any way, and for anyone
to join as a formal member, they would still need to apply, regardless of past
