You couldn't travel to Sydney, but you didn't turn up on IRC? Did you even
watch the stream?

Did you actually talk to anyone about holding a proxy vote for you, or did
you just assume no one would do so? A proxy vote does not mean "the person
will vote their way for you", it means they will represent your vote and
your voting intentions.

My perspective: You made a whopping great deal about sweet fuck all (and
continue to do so, with the snarky little jabs in this thread), and didn't
make any effort to stand up for your views when it actually mattered.
