Why? I don't know, seriously.

When discussing such matters, you'll want to take out the sarcasm (which
you've applied in a few of your answers, it really doesn't help).
Furthermore, you've said that "[you] *strongly* imply that the board and
the travel committee are corrupt". You better come up with proofs of
that before carrying on this conversation.

Having been on the board, I can assure you that "preferential treatment"
does not equate to corruption. I put preferential treatment in quotes
because that's what it might look like from an outside point of view,
especially if you've been refused sponsorship for an event. But the fact
is that somebody who's been in the community for longer, or that's
already delivered higher-level talks about the project's direction, or
that's delivered very successful talks is more likely to get sponsorship
than a person that doesn't have that history.

So, why do you think the travel committee and the Board are corrupt? Did
you or a friend of yours get denied sponsorship? Did you ask for the
reason for refusal?
