A few points in response to your mail:
First, the SLUG president, Jeff Waugh, cannot find a copy of your mail.
He has also been overseas for the last fortnight and not in a position
to regularly read his mail. You would have been better off emailing the
entire committee for comment, as was strongly suggested by SLUG's
contact details page.
Second, there remains a vast difference between stating that you did not
receive a reply to your email, and stating that SLUG "did not bother to
respond". The final paragraph of your article is a misrepresentation of
what took place, and unfairly portrays SLUG as having ignored an inquiry
that, in fact, the SLUG committee did not receive.
