I like the Weber Rule, and will be incorporating it.

To wit: “Any con which disinvites a guest for any reason other than demonstrated misbehavior on that guest’s part (such misbehavior to include threats of violence but not simply threats to someone else’s complacency) will go on to our list (“Oh, we have a little list! We have a little list!”) of conventions at which we will be forever missed.” Not that nearly as many people would care about my decision to not attend; but I suspect that more than a few con committees might be worried about David Weber’s decision, and you never know. Maybe this stance of mine will be actually meaningful, some day.

But whether or not it ever does become meaningful, this is what I am going to.

    That was well said by Mr. Weber. Well written, I mean.

      .. as one expects, yes.

      I suspect Moe would have said it as well in roughly 2/3 the words, but .. I agree, Mad Wizard Weber is very good.

    “We will be made to care.”
    .
    Other things are a symptom, and the font of what we chose to care about is popular culture. One of the main reasons I throw money at Mr. Lane: They can only be countered by content that not only allow for many points of view but also Does-Not-Suck. As Lady-GhostBusters and these con-bullies reveal, Not-Sucking remains their greatest weakness.

    At the very least, it saves you on badge fees and travel costs.
