Your continuing protestation at hosting linux.conf.au in New Zealand may be
slightly amusing, albeit irritating, but this is absolutely offensive. The
current and previous two committees have made enormous progress, making the
organisation infinitely more relevant and productive. I'd put it to you very
strongly that you are both wrong and terribly ungrateful to boot.
