Empty rooms give more opportunities to those, especially from the Middle East who want to deny the existence of our people and steal our cultural heritage. Our presence becomes an obstacle to these individuals from people in the Middle East who are chauvinistic and who have denial attitude. Our presence also provides information and knowledge to the individuals and groups that do not have a good knowledge of our people. We who socialize with others outside our people must be flexible and able to adapt to the level of knowledge and the environment there, otherwise we will do more harm than good.
At one of the International Congresses in Assyriology I have been present and listened to a lecture about war and which contained cruel scenes. After the lecture I saw an individual of our people who are not Assyriologists went to the lecturer / Assyriologist and told him why he showed those scenes that are not true. After we left the lecture hall, I spoke to her (from the United States) saying she was wrong, because she is not an Assyriologist and that we should not be involved in what these Assyriologists show and tell about it. I also told her that she should have asked a question if these scenes are true, or are just war propaganda to scare upset groups.
You should not interfere with topics that you are not familiar with, but you should be a good listener and ask questions about things you do not know about or things you are not sure about. You have to behave at an academic level when you are in the Society of academics, etc.
