We *should* worry about people
who come to the IETF once and never come back - because they probably came
to the wrong meeting, and went home unhappy.
Well, you've certainly convinced me never to attend a meeting.
The attitude being promulgated by the majority of these posts,
whether justified or not, is most likely to lead (IMO)
to IETF meetings populated by two distinct groups of people:
1) Old timers
2) The clueless masses
Everyone else will be afraid to show up.
When the old timers are gone, all that will be left are the clueless;
down that path lurks madness and anarchy.
