Totaly agree with this.

The organisers of Cochin conference have a very good opportunity here
to present their side of the story as on how their choice of Novell as
a sponsor is justified, why disagreement was handled with violence,
and why Arun and others were treated disrespectfully.  Instead what we
get to see is complete ad hominem and emotional outburts against a
bunch of individuals in FSF-I board, who may or may not have been
right in their actions.  I do not have a reason to believe that FSF-I
director board is a power structure either, as accused previously --
if they are a power-abusing cabal, the existence of these threads have
to have some sort of explanation which I can't figure out myself.
