I’m going to post most of the stuff I’ve seen here for people to go through. I can’t guarantee that I will get all of it, but I will make an effort.
I’ve been keeping track of the flow of this from almost the beginning because so many of the puppies are Facebook friends. Here’s my take from my blog:
And here’s a stack of blog posts from various puppies as the situation has run down hill into deeper and deeper tossing of slime from the CHORF’s. I’ve been reblogging right along and I think I got most of the important posts.

This is where it was becoming apparent that the CHORF’s were going to threaten peoples careers over their precious rocketships

I just have to wonder what kind of crap he’s getting. As far as I can see the campaign of slime, innuendo, threats and straight out lies that the CHORFs have been running is all out of proportion to the possible results they could achieve. To say nothing of the attempts to smear the puppies in every media outlet they can get their hands on and the recruitment of the likes of Arthur Chu. The good things is that we all get to see just what kind of people the CHORFs are. It’s not been pretty.

Eric Flint owes Brad Torgeson a HUGE apology.
Vox Day Hugo tag.
Since they linked me, I’ll link them. They could have at least clipped what I wrote to get the context straight, which was rather important in that post.
Larry Corriea Sad Puppies:
Charlie Martin on PJmedia:
Why Connie Willis will not be presenting:
The weirdest take I get from this is that certain people were “supposed” to get nominations. If the CHORFs were not fixing the nominations, how could that happen?
Mad Genius Club:
Since I put Vox’s blog, I better put Scalzi’s up.
A good summary from Liberty Island.
And is Piers Plowman better than some of the CHORF Hugo noms?
Jim Hines has no sense of humor.
