Keep in mind that a few people have pointed out reasons why LCA in NZ will
benefit the Australian community, and that the vast majority of the list and
membership has accepted this interesting/controversial/fun spin on things as
a good idea for LCA (particularly given the other proposals for 2006). :-)

Lorn, you've made your point, and you've been given sensible, polite answers
to your questions. Unfortunately, it is too late for this discussion to have
any reasonable impact - we discussed it months ago, and the organisation of
the conference is already underway. Thanks for raising it - please don't get
the impression that it wasn't considered when the decision was made (and
when it was discussed on list).
