That being the case i'll happily go back to my perch. :-)
Having read two of Anthony's posts and without knowing your history I 
just wanted to ensure we were focusing on the important matter that the 
thread was about - the candidacy and your suitability for the role.
I certainly think you're qualified for the role, despite your mixed stack :)

(Thanks for your kind words regarding LCA2015 too. I was a load of fun 
to put on and i'm immensely proud of what we achieved. I'm sure LCA2016 
will set the standard even higher, however...)
