Parent article: ESR's goodbye note
Actually, he is not clear with his rules at all. I once worked on a conference that invited him to speak (along with many others). Shortly before the conference started, he sent me an angry flame complaining about the fact that we had not set up the trip to his exacting specifications. He pointed to that same damn travel requirements document.
I checked my email and politely explained to him that he *never* *told* us about his requirements. Furthermore, none of the other 30 attendees were so demanding. He acted churlish, but showed up anyway.
Apparently, I erred in not reading everything on his website. Regardless of the rules, the arrogance and self importance of expecting everyone to know them is mind boggling.
