Hello folks,

According to my seatmate on my flight home, there
were times when IESG or IAOC members would request
that certain hallway discussions be terminated.
I knew that it was considered impolite to comment
in public on the lack of Internet access for the
un-privileged "other" members of the local population,
but I was surprised that our IETF "officials" would
also act as thought police.  Is it true?  Does anyone
on this list have any more direct information?
