In order to dispel any doubt that there may be over my opinion on the matter:

Firstly, It's my firm belief that the correct response of a convention committee hearing criticism of their convention, or its current or previous committees, is to prove those critics wrong by running a great event.

Secondly, it seems to me that banning your critic from your event, refusing to enter into any online discussion on the matter, and refusing to discuss it with any other persons, seems (on the face of it) to be a little odd.

Thirdly and finally, I'm trying to remember any occasion when a committee has banned a critic and then refused to discuss it, and then gone on to find that their public image has improved in any way. No success yet.

I need a job before I can go to any cons! I was meant to be on 3 panels at next year's Eastercon but have had to withdraw as it looks like I won't get to go :-(

Ah sorry - that was insensitive of me, especially as I am aware of your situation. My apologies.

Not at all. I wasn't annoyed, just saying.
