That really sux...you don't like it but want to keep it.
I would call that squatting!

How about this as an alternative:
How bout if those that think the LA name is bad for them just run off and
start their own org?

IMHO there is a pathetic and frankly sickening political agenda at play
here specifically designed to elicit extreme response that can be pointed
to as being "anti open whatever" . Seems some just want to ride the back of
and crush ...what has been and will continue to be a successful
org....called LINUX AUSTRALIA.

In short, I call on  those that are buzzing out this name change
spin/script/meme/"pointy at the constitution wanky"  just go and play with
their own toys!

Set up your own org, spend your own time and effort to create what you want.
Leave LA alone!
Stop the hijack!
