That's fine. Just make sure the attendee knows that's your opinion. The big thing to remember is that these are meerly guidelines. I'm thinking that it would just be wise to emphasize the difference between proven fact and user opinions.

Refrain from political discussion? So if I'm "representing" HPR I am not 
allowed to discuss anarchism?

I don't know if that sits right with me. I believe I represent HPR by my 
contributions, but I am who I am, and I'm not going to refrain from talking 
about my opinions just because I'm sitting at an HPR booth. 

Am I nit picking here?
