I am. What I object to is declaring this as a postgresql.org conference when it hasn't been generally agreed in an appropriate community forum (which would be -advocacy imho). Doing so effectively allows *anyone* to organise an event and call it 'official' - which I believe is definitely not something we want for a whole heap of reasons.
