While I appreciate the sentiment - LA is in the enviable financial
position it is only because of PLUG, HUMBUG, SLUG and LUV have done 
amazing work organising conferences.

Also, I didn't give up the office of President. I contested it against Pia
and she was elected in the most democratic means that we could arrange.

There are some obvious flaws to the process but hopefully these things
can be corrected well in time for the next AGM.
