someone who decided that, since his ranting on another list didn't
achieve the desired gnashing of teeth and rending of garments, he'd
try again on the IETF list.
While the original post in the train thread may or may not
have been unpleasantly whiny, I think some excellent points
have been raised and the discussion hasn't deteriorated to
such an extent that it needs a moderator. Some really nice
places are terrible meeting locations and some places that
aren't that well-liked as tourist destinations are excellent
meeting locations. Trying to understand the differentiators
strikes me as a completely worthwhile exercise.
But in the meantime the discussion has thrown some light on
the requirements definition process, eh?
