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.

The only reason I weighed in is I've been on convention and society committees and it always annoys me to see somebody attack a bunch of people who've given up their free time to do something for others. Even if they've not done a good job they deserve respect for effort and being the ones who actually got off their bum and tried. Also in one particular club I'm in it's ones who have done a good job before who seem happiest to attack the current incumbents

Couldn't agree more.
