"Why are we obsessed with RSA when we have an alternate venue?"
1. We're dropping out of a contract
2. It's an important issue with 150 emails in the thread from our
community(as you know).
We have to be thoughtful and handle through appropriate voting channels.
Also, I captured my thoughts* in the thread to the leaders list, but I
disagree with an approach where we evaluate our perception of accusations
and ethics for events we wish to speak at. By that measure we would need to
fully evaluate the ethics of bsides or blackhat before deciding to speak at
their events. Ethics and judgement aren't our mission.
