can you please stop this?

whatever tu berlin or any other LAC host in the past has has decided to 
do in order to host lac
a) is their ultimately their business
b) was always handled in a way which provided a great benefit to the 
linux audio community
c) is certainly not correctly described by "copious amounts of advertising".

your rhetoric is clearly bending the facts here, and i find it quite 
offensive towards the people who have invested many many hours of work 
into hosting LACs.

it's also totally beside the point. nobody here except you has so far 
spoken in favour of advertising on the *.linuxaudio.org sites. we could 
deal certainly deal with this by invoking the consortium governance 
structures that exist, but at this point it doesn't even seem to me 
there is enough interest to put it onto the agenda in the first place.

can't we just put this to rest, and you can then pursue this idea privately?
