Is it still fair to say that Australia still has an "active" ubuntu

It seems that the proposed monthly meeting have failed, if a call for
help goes out on #ubuntu-au it generally goes unanswered as the person
doing the asking is in need of a quick answer and possibly leaves
assuming no-one wants to help them.

Is ubuntu-au still a current valid loco team if it's essentially

What I'm hoping to achieve here is constructive comments/criticism of
the current state of ubuntu-au and hopefully get some activity happening
again... (may just be banging my head against a brick wall!)

Now I have abandoned any future applications (already tried twice only
to be rejected) to become an ubuntu member due to the narrow minded ways
of the force! but I'm keen to make a go of making something of

Currently the ubuntu-au mailing list averages about 25-75 spam emails a
day! and it's rare to see a valid request (from mirrored sources of this
list) also they are generally requests for help. I realise that not
everyone is at their PC 24/7 or active on IRC but if I was asked as to
the current involvement of ubuntu-au I'd be hard pressed to give an
truthful answer to it meaning as currently it achieves very little

So please bring forth a plethora of suggestion/ideas & comments... 

I am but one... as many we are a community...  lets make it "happen"
