And as a result, I've had to suffer 10 days of offensive, ad hominem attacks. Thanks!

I'm not apologising, because I did nothing wrong.

You don't have to apologize, really. You just have to stop arguing, because I believe you've made your argument, and there are really no further points to make (on either side). By continuing, you seem (to me) to be stubborn and unsympathetic, unwilling to concede that another interpretation of the situation is a valid interpretation worthy of sympathy. I am sure that is not a fully accurate description of you, but unfortunately I have only these last 10 days of reading these discussions to go on.

Looking at the time-lines, all those "offenderati" that came along to attack me as a result of your blogging, would almost certainly never have seen the cartoon had you not called attention to it by blogging.

Are you saying that bad behavior shouldn't be publicized? Of course, this argument is all about whether or not the behavior was bad, but if it was bad, should it not be publicized? If it wasn't bad, does it matter if it was publicized?

    You just have to stop arguing, ... Are you saying...? ...? ...?

    So which is it; shut up or answer your questions?

    By continuing, you seem ...

[ambrus]: If you don't do that, some people will be able to use only two thirds of the available screen area, or have to prepare three versions of their slides, each of which is a waste that you could avoid with one simple phrase in the call for papers.
[Corion]: As for somebody hosting national conferences, we don't always know the kind of connectors and aspect ratios available ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: well sure, but that's the similar to any printed document, and the margin is diminishing with today's technology. Video games no longer have to assume that the CRTs won't show the edges of the screen.
[Corion]: If you cram your slides with that much information, they might work in an "offline" situation but not very well for a live presentation IMO
[ambrus]: Corion: in that case I also ask the people who rent the conference rooms to tell conference organizers about the available tech.
[Corion]: ambrus: No, you're misunderstanding. If you place content too far on the left/right/top/ bottom, people might not see it because the view is obstructed ;)(
[Corion]: In Amsterdam, the screen went down to the bottom of the stage (60cm above ground) and the seating was on the ground, meaning that the rows in the back couldn't see the bottom of slides.
[Corion]: There also were some columns that meant that maybe you couldn't see the left/right edge of a slide.
[ambrus]: Corion: Sure. I've had a course in a 50 seat lecture hall that has two fucking columns in the middle.
[Corion]: Talking about it, the top should be fairly visible in the situations I've experienced at least. The top is uncomfortable for people in the first three rows, but that's life ;)
