Not to be politically incorrect, or to seem insensitive etc, but is it
possible that maybe we're getting a little ahead of ourselves here?  A
comittee, training etc?

Personally I think it's unfortunate that people can't just be respectful,
courteous and professional (aka excellent), and that the actions of some
dorks at a previous organizations events have lead to a a lot of time and
effort here regarding what we should do here.

Anyway, not criticizing and I by no means wan to appear as though I'm not
respectful of the ideas here, just noticing this seems like it could become
a bit of a beast in and of itself.
