OWASP Leaders,

Among many reasons, one being that Eoin and I are co-authors, I am going to follow his lead and pull way from the RSA conference training.

This was a difficult decision and I am not happy at how this all went down. Again, I think we need to apply this same kind of judgement evenly.

Frankly, I was very positive on doing the RSA training up until we received their response asking us to cease-and-desist from talking to BSsides and asking Eoin for a retraction. I can't say that I blame them, but it made it clear to me that we we either need to do the co-marketing and training, or walk away from both.

> Sorry I this upsets some people. I was voted (as a board member)  to lead by you and I am trying to do just that.
