/me wonders if it's really fair to level criticism at the organizers
for missing the end of CfP by a few hours when the CfP was extended
I apologize if it came across as trying to blame the organizers - the
fault was mine for waiting until the last minute and making an
assumption on what "through May 2" meant. It's not like I didn't know
that May 2 was the deadline.
I was simply trying to provide feedback that adding a timezone to make
deadlines clearer is helpful.
