Anthony, the blog post you cited gave the above URL to support it's claim 
about Ted being banned.  The only incidence of the word "banned" in that Wiki 
page is where David Zanetti is quoted as stating a belief that Ted should be 
banned.  As far as I am aware David Zanetti has never been in a position to 
ban people from LCA, so while his opinion is an indication of how seriously 
people take this issue there's no reason to think it indicates Linux Australia 

I don't think Otter Technology wrote a good blog post about this.

Anyway there seems to be an informal tradition of having one contentious issue 
to flame about at each LCA.  I guess this will be the issue for LCA 2019.
