Abstract: A year ago, in my Comment entitled 'Absent',1 I wrote a sad and sorry tale of how the General Dental Council (GDC) had spent registrant’s cash on booking a stand at the British Dental Association (BDA) Annual Conference in Manchester, and how the Chairman of Council and the Chief Executive were 'absent'. In other words, they did not attend Manchester to man the stand, thereby missing a wonderful opportunity to interact with their public, the dentists of the UK. I took a photograph of the stand (used in 'Absent') and, for my trouble, I received a letter advising me that I had been threatening to the staff on the stand by taking the photograph!
