I totally agree with Michael here.
Also the best way to say you do not agree with the way a previous conference
was done is to step up and organise a bunch of people to run the next one.
You have ideas of how LCA can be done better. Instead of whining about it,
organise the next LCA. That is the one and only way to ensure LCA is the
conference you absolutely want it to be 
 with the small detracting point that you may not get to exerience the
conference in the traditional way 
 the experience could actually be a lot better.
