Actually you should re-examine how the decision was reached before you
commit further slander.

The reason that I, and a lot of other people, ignore most of what you say
is that it is obvious you are neither serious nor genuine.
If you were you would have attended a Linux.Conf.Au - in fact, the
conference was held in Perth and you did not bother to show up. No
explanation, no reason, just lots of whining.
Since then you have proceeded to whine about everything; I perceive
this as a case of sour grapes that you did not go to the conference.

I would say that the best thing this list could do would be to remove
you from it; your posts are offensive, tiresome and repeative.
Generally, rather than waste my time writing to this list - where you
might pipe up and say something pointless as usual - I'll write directly
to the people in question.
You are one of the major causes that Linux Australia, and this mailing
list, does not work as well as it could in my opinion.
A serious and genuine Bret Busby would remove himself - as he is such
a large obsticle to useful and effective debate - from this mailing list.
You are stifling the Linux community in Australia.

And I say that Bret Busby should do the same.
Then perhaps you'll be able to accomplish something useful.
