Context: uncle bob threatened to sue a conference because they asked him not to speak.
@peregrine who is bob?
Best left unknown but if you need to know
@neauoire he was one of the original programming “thought leaders” who says a lot of stupid shit. I don’t know the full story but he said some even worse stupid shit about women and minorities and a conference asked him to not come. So he threatened to sue and did his own stream claiming its a conspiracy that nobody invites him anymore.
But if you threaten to sue why would anyone want that hanging over their conf?
