Well you have made it quite clear that the organisation serves only the 
interests of the committee members, and that it uses whatever offensive 
and dirty tactics it can, to protect that, and that it deliberately acts 
against the interests of its members and the interests of the Linux 

I have not encountered such dirty tactics as I have from you, and as a 
senior office-bearer of the organisation, and the last president, you 
have definitely proven that if the "best people for the jobs" got them, 
as bush got his presidency, by skulduggery, so as to prevent any form of 
democracy and to preserve autocracy, Linux in Australia has no chance, 
as the organisation is now run by scum who act so reprehensibly as to 
bring Linux into disrepute.
