TH: Nothing against the topic! Or the idea.

Improving the perception of peering in markets, that do not currently 
peer widely, is no negative thing in my mind. I just think the delivery 
was poor (counter-productive, even.)

I did feel sufficiently convinced that his tone was so overly 
condescending (despite the 'entry level' topic), as to make a flippant 
remark/dig about the presentation itself.

But I'm fairly sure no-one is too concerned as to what I think about it, 
so I'll just be quiet next time. :)
