Bret has a history of objecting to various LA decisions verging on the
troll like as can be evidenced by his comparison of the decision to go
to NZ with tax payer funded "Study Tours" taken by politicians, thus
inferring that the LA committee are rorting the conference funds.

Part of your previous post included a statement to the effect that
sponsors would drop the conference because of "trust issues" however
here you seem to take it as read that sponsors don't care.

See here I have a problem. If all you are going to do is complain about
the way things are done and are not willing to put in the time to "fix"
the problems as you see fit, then we are going to have to agree to
disagree on this issue and it would be best to end this cyclic thread.
