I know that many e-mails were sent out to the local SIGs stating that
there was a discount and what the discounted price was. See:

There were also e-mails early on (around March or April) asking for
presenters. You could have presented at UTOSC and then you wouldn't
have had to pay the $40.

I feel that's like saying the Utah Home Remodeling show is like
DefCon. It has various tracks, events, and competitions. So does

It's not $100+ for UTOSC, it was $40. (even late registration with a
discount code was only $55.) Anybody that paid more than $55 for the
conference didn't try to get a discount code.

I don't feel like Utah Open Source tried to hide the fact that there
was a huge discount. If you weren't aware of the amount of the
discount, then I feel like it's your own fault.
