Thanks for the feedback. i am interested in your thoughts on this...

We are in discussions with them (Bsides). How can a commercial organisation tell us who we can and can't talk to? 

I suppose my argument re the tweet is we did pull the plug on the commercial contract as of yesterday, I sent the tweet as a result of being informed there was a desire to kill the contract by OWASP staff.

On the other hand, we have the right to talk with anyone we want in order to provide training. Thus, I would suggest that you apologise as they are asking, but also politely make them understand that noone can stop us from delivering training in any conference or event in order to spread our word and fulfill our mission.
