Hear hear, Griffin.
Also, Micah made some good points.
Adding on what Griffin and Micah have saidI think OHM is an opportunity for those discussions to happen between legitimate people at a legitimate and exciting event. I myself am presenting a talk and a workshop at OHM and NoisySquare.
If you want to focus your ire on something, go take a look at how DEFCON and BlackHat are inviting NSA Director Keith Alexander to give the keynote!
