In reading some of the recent posts on this topic, I think
William Case has hit the nail on the head when he refers to 'rudeness'
as theft of both the presenter's time and effort and of the enjoyment of
the presentation by the rest of the membership. I also support his plea
that Matthew re-consider his decision to leave OCLUG. We've already
lost too many good members because of the immature actions of a few
rude, know-it-all, I-can-do-it-better load mouths and Matthew's
departure would just be yet another example of the few spoiling things
for the many. If these morons think they're so smart, why don't they
offer to give a lighting talk or a full presentation? The reason they
don't make this offer is that they'd rather be a pain in the butt than
make a meaningful contribution to OCLUG. If anyone should leave OCLUG,
it's these clowns.
David's observations for the need of some method of
bringing a bit more control to the meetings are well founded. No one
objects to a bit of spontaneity from time to time, but we're not talking
about that - we're talking about inconsiderable people who have no
respect for themselves or for anyone else.
