Well...

The thing is, I'm allergic to controversy, especially internet controversy. I don't like fighting over things. Especially con-things.

So, due to probably-foreseeable anger with my idea from the Readercon folks, we'll likely try to find another weekend for IslandCon.

I still don't think I'll be attending Readercon. I still think it's the wrong direction for the con and an alarming canary in the mine for fandom. It saddens me, and I hope they come back in 2011, because while this may be my father's Readercon, it's not mine.

But I don't want to go down fighting and never be welcome there again. That may well already be the case. I should probably have known better. So I'll have my barbecue some other time. Weekend nominations are open as of now.
