  • Commented on How I learned to stop worrying and love the concept of punitive slating....
    Your statements do not match my recollection of reality. But I'm not going to get into an argument about it, so I suggest you do the same. That aside: any statement that is anywhere close to the lines of "it's...
  • Commented on How I learned to stop worrying and love the concept of punitive slating....
    they've probably got the raw numbers to get some of their preferred kind of SF on the ballot without resorting to gaming the system That's where the gaming part comes from: there was active effort on the part of...
  • Commented on How I learned to stop worrying and love the concept of punitive slating....
    given the nominating power of the ~6000 current Hugo voters I've said this elsewhere, but: one of the few good things that can come from this whole mess is spurring more eligible people to nominate. One (but only one)...
  • Commented on How I learned to stop worrying and love the concept of punitive slating....
    However, you can't put Alfie Award on a book jacket Sure you can. It won't mean much to most people, but then again, odds are "Hugo Award Winner" doesn't mean a whole lot, they just see "Award Winner" and...
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    Don't be silly, a Hugo Award should be powered by He3 fusion....
  • Commented on Chilling Effects
    What, exactly, are you trying to say?...
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    Ian S, your comment was removed because it was going off-rails, and it's too early (and we're keeping too tight a reign on this post) to do that....
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    Last warning: stop it. Further comments in that vein will be removed, or if I'm feeling really mean, edited to include Melissa Etheridge lyrics....
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    Please don't respond to the trolls, other than to point them out....
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    They are moving as fast as possible. It's called rules, and they're very clear on what the process is for changes....
  • Commented on Bad puppies, no awards
    Write-ins result in a very much harder counting process, and also have problems with eligibility issues....
  • Commented on Chilling Effects
    Off-topic comments will be removed. For an idea of what is on-topic, read Linda's post....
  • Commented on Data, books, and bias
    Your post is still there, you posted it in "Where Have All The Women Gone?", not "Data, books, and bias." (Well, maybe you posted more than one? But none of your comments were in the very annoyed sweeping from last...
  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?
    Both of you, stop it. Further posts from either of you in these veins are subject to removal without further warning....
  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?
    You are borderline argumentative; you continue to compare the topic of discussion to other, not particularly related, topics; you have been called out on it often, by multiple people. To be very blunt, you've run through all the patience any...
  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?
    Someone may have already made this point, but I'm not going to read through 350 comments to find out Then don't make it. Yes, it's a lively discussion, which means lots of comments, but if you're going to decide...
  • Commented on Data, books, and bias
    Stop it. Now. You want to go on about how it's not really white male power, it's actually elitist power and everyone is screwed? Do it somewhere else. The only reasons I have not unapproved that comment are because I...
  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?
    Windle_poons said SFF, not just SF. There's also Rosemary Kirstein, whose books everyone should buy....
  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?
    Not counting the ones here, or that Charlie mentioned? N. K. Jemisin. Aliette De Bodard. Lexie Dunne. Naomi Novik. Melissa Scott. Seanan McGuire. Those are within the last dozen authors whose books I've purchased. Note that I am assuming gender...
  • Commented on Random thought for the day
    If you find yourself thinking, "I can say this as rudely as possible," or "I can try for politeness," please go for the latter. If you don't find yourself thinking that, please start....
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances, Amsterdam, Seattle and Spokane
    That's fascinating, and I start to understand the reason for differences in attitude about custom plates....
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances, Amsterdam, Seattle and Spokane
    I have two BMWs with custom plates. Of course, I also had to swerve out of the way today when a bicyclist decided that a stop light didn't really apply to him and went straight on through the intersection I...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    His full name, as stated in the books, is Robert Oliver Francis Howard....
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    You mean "Designed by Apple in Cupertino, California." They'd be made in China. Or maybe Brazil. (Blast it, now I am picturing what an Ive-designed baseball bat would look like.)...

    If I shaved my beard off, nobody would believe I knew anything about unix....

  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Equoid
    People are getting annoyingly close to needing a warning. Feel free to discuss the philosophy of metawarnings....
  • Commented on From the hemline index to the vampire/zombie ratio: SF/F by the numbers
    It's a world in which setting charges on electronic components in a specific pattern alters the rules of physics -- the explanation for vampires in that setting was very rational. (Far more rational than most, for sure.) (It doesn't explain...
  • Commented on The Evil Business Plan of Evil (and misery for all)
    Right. All of you stop for the night, please....
