        If there was no guideline for speaking, then indeed you are
 right. However, in the talk, Linus himself admitted being sent a
 guideline, which he choose to not read.  I was merely taking him at his
 word (seemed to be the respectful thing to do)

        Indeed, I have no special knowledge of this apart from being
 part of he audience, the debconf delegates know what, if any, speaker
 guidelines were inplay, and whether these were violated. I am just
 stating that the rules ought to be uniformly appled, irrespective of
 the stature of the speaker.
