Must say that I am angry at myself for not watching this sooner.

I deplore bullying, harassment , offence to others and everything else
associated with such.....if someone saw these traits in that presentation
then frankly, you really do need to get out more and widen your horizons.
The world will not stop changing just for you.

That presentation was about threats to freedom through privacy
invasion....and a persons idea for one way out.
Get a clue...freedom some times HURTS!...we all need to deal with it if it
is to be preserved!

If Linux Australia want a G rated conference then I don;t really understand
how a bloated code of conduct is going to do to fix this.

Why not this:

Code of conduct:
Linux.conf.au presentations must adhere to the Australian censorship laws
for a G rating.

End of story, end of wanky, self-opinionated and bloated diatribe from both
sides of the divide!
