Complaints

Excerpt from Tony Marsland's report [7] :
Despite last minute clarifications on the entry requirements, which undermined the organizer’s plans, and despite the paranoia of some participants and the energetic way they filed such complaints as: Is Rebel Computers really a subsidiary of Hegener & Glaser? Was Fidelity secretly using a multiprocessor? Were the ReCom and Mephisto teams conspiring to fix the outcome of the event (in a foreign tongue, yet), and so on. Such nervousness is not uncommon in micro events, but the complaints were dealt with in a serious and conscientious way, even if some issues were not fully resolved.
