UPDATE: @vergeconference might have blocked people by accident (they switched something around). Hopefully this answers why many of us were blocked.
So, you know how I recently commented on my disappointment upon seeing the Verge2010 has only male speakers? I didn’t think I was mean. Apparently whoever is running the Verge twitter account doesn’t like questions because any of us who asked the question about the all male speaker lineup were banned from their twitter feed. Really? Is that what accounts for missional these days? I would email someone personally but there isn’t an email address on the website and I don’t want to bug my friends who are speakers because I know speakers at these things almost never have control over the actual event. And truthfully, I don’t care.Now, just to show that I have some perspective, I greatly respect many of the men speaking at Verge. They have served me in my spiritual journey and as a missional community leader. And I have no doubt that the planners of Verge are great folk. So all I was asking is if they noticed that they only have males speaking. I also have no intention of spending my time bashing Verge or the speakers there. I know how that feels and I won’t do it to someone else. So I’ll drop it now but I just think this whole situation is unfortunate – STARTING with the planner’s choice (oversight?) to include only men as speakers.
