Not bad at all.  It only took a bit over a week for the organizers of 
ICRS12 to respond to the thread of queries about the registration charges 
for next year's meeting.  Intriguing though that neither the Conference 
Convenor nor the President of ISRS appeared able to communicate with the 
list directly.  Instead David Yellowlees had to combine and then forward 
their responses.  I wonder what that means?

Re the content of their explanation:  Budgets get built; they do not arise 
out of thin air.  Apparently, those doing the budget building felt that a 
fee of AUD $940 (the early-bird rate for ISRS members) was appropriate. It 
was not.

What has happened to the coral reef science community?
