I wouldn't have asked if I didn't want to improve
SMAUG. I'm a web developer and an open source
enthusiast, this is what I do. If you don't like it,
tough beans, maybe you should step aside and stop
stiffling progress.

If all I wanted was to increase my link popularity, I
would've written a spam bot for adding comments to
Movable Type or Blogger. Really, you need to STFU when
you don't have a clue.

If the original designers wanted a link, I wouldn't
have had a problem with it. It's not too much to ask. 

Personally, I think the sponsors page should have a
list of everybody who participates in SMAUG above and
beyond attending meetings. It's called "giving credit,
where credit is do".
