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.

As a matter of fact, I have seen a joint statement from P and Octocon in which they say that they have talked it over, each has grown wiser, each has done some thinkin', and the ban has been rescinded and it would be nice to draw a line under it now please?

To which I will gladly subscribe. I am really happy that this incident has been resolved amicably.

Yup - I was actually referring to that bit when I said that it appeared that the situation was resolved, which is indeed good news :)
