    Cerf Society Now Exceeds 52 Week Calendar Limits

    Cerf Society Now Exceeds 52 Week Calendar Limits

    It has been noted before that the arrogance of
    the Cerf Society and the Digerati such as Dyson
    has no limit. There are some limits that may help
    to reduce the damage they can do, via their
    secret deals and collusions with an alphabet soup
    of non-profit sham bodies they self-created.

    One such limit is the 52 weeks in a year. Not
    even the ICANN Board is foolish enough to attempt
    to change the world's calendars to their liking.

    To make their collusion more effective, the secret
    Cerf Society has a list of bodies that MUST
    coordinate meat-space meeting schedules. That
    helps to ensure that they can dominate and game
    any venue. As second secret list helps shape the
    first list's schedule.

    What really shapes the schedule is of course the
    few dozen insider's schedules and the bodies they
    manage/represent. Seasonal factors are also
    inserted to take the insiders to exotic travel
    locations at the "right" time of the year. The
    "community" of course knows what "right" means.
    Those concepts are consensus-based, of course.

    (B) Bodies we prefer not to clash with:

        * ACM SIGCOMM
        * AfriNIC
        * AfNOG
        * ANSI T10
