Participation in a LUG should not be predicated on a commitment to
take part in all of its activities. Personally, I have no interest
in your Awareness Days, and I make no apology for that whatever. If
you intend to continue them, I wish you the best of luck with that,
but I feel no moral obligation of any kind to support them.

Apparently this makes me a "freeloader". Yet I've been happy to
provide advice and support on the list, and answer peoples'
questions when I've been able to do so, and I resent your suggestion
that participation on the list or other activities without being
interested in Awareness Days amounts to "freeloading".

Pardon? Sorry to hear that your Awareness Days proved unpopular, but
none of us are obliged to support or take part in them. Speaking
personally, my conscience is crystal-clear, I can assure you.
