A quick postscript to the Ringoing of Correia

The other day, I discussed how Larry, like John Ringo, had been disinvited from a convention because of the hate mobs of the internet.

I then talked about being a guest at DragonCon, and idly wondered if anyone was going to try the lynch mob BS on me, and see if they could get me kicked off of the DragonCon guest list.

After some due consideration, I realize that, of the people at DragonCon this year who might have pissed them off the most (which, granted, is a sliding scale that), I might actually be in the top five. There's Michael Z Williamson, Ringo, and Richard Paolinelli and I were fairly big Sad Puppies supporters, back in the day (Being 3, maybe 4). But hey, you back it once, you're on the enemies list.

I guess I should tell DragonCon about this before the deluge starts. It's not that I really think that it's likely. Hell, who am I compared to bestselling authors?

....Though on the other hand, if the SJW lynch mob were smart, they'd start small, and see if they could come after a smaller name author.

But for those suckers who would want to try tackling a DragonCon guest (and you know they're out there)...

While we're on the topic, please recall to vote in the Dragon Awards.

If you don't have your ballot filled out already (either IRL or in your head,) here's my list. It includes the lists of other people, so there are options.
Just remember to vote.
