Any Fool...

I'm sitting in the office at Alan Shoemaker's place listening to two men complaining the conference has proved a disappointment to them and they'd like a refund. I'm reminded of a quote from Ben Franklin:
"Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do."


Of course, I make my own complaints, but these guys want a refund because the most recognizable brand name celebrity they associate with the conference, Dennis McKenna, isn't here. His name was taken off the website months ago, so they have no leg to stand on there. They're also complaining that Peter Gorman left before giving his scheduled presentation. He had a medical emergency and had to leave.

I've met so many amazing people here, but those two guys were not among them. I've made a point of introducing myself to as many people as I can, and I've formed some valuable contacts. These guys are hung up on the "celebs" and pay no attention to the real value of the experience and seemingly have walked oblivious through a crowd of astounding souls to whom these two seem deaf, dumb and blind. The bulk of the money they spent was on international airfare. They've attended 3 days of a 5 day conference, and now they want Alan to re-reimburse them.

Good-ness.
