Sean-

Others have chimed in quite well here, so I'll just add a few comments.

Mmm... that's where you're wrong. From the time you joined the 
discussions here you've been an active part of the community, at times 
an excellent source of information, at others a welcome gadfly. There 
are a lot of folks in the community here that I know only through email 
and list conversations, and I have no idea what their personas are like. 
And for the most part I don't care. I think the response here was simply 
that one of our own was in trouble. This has nothing to do with you on a 
personal level, and everything to do with you on a personal level.

Not really, but thanks for the background.

Been there, done that. More times than you.
Points in the LC rant are well taken.

Well, the last couple have been in Edinburgh, and while I love the place 
dearly, it's certainly not cheap to fly over from California. But we do 
it. Because I wouldn't miss a chance to network with folks during the 
conference. And remote access to the conference sessions is (almost) 
always offered if you can't make it in person.
