The other day Stephanie Sounders posted a blog post asking for moderation from the puppy kickers. I have come to the hard conclusion that moderation is something that the puppy kickers are incapable of.
I’m going to start this post for Sad Puppies stuff that doesn’t deserve a full post.
Summary Vox Day, Vox Day, Puppies are bad. We HAD to smash the Hugos because we are the GOOD people.
Gallo wins Illustrators’ Award. If these are the examples for her art direction, it wasn’t for her work.
The puppy kickers are now making Lego figures.
I stopped playing with Lego a looong time ago.
Phil Sandifer writes open letter.
Here’s the thing Phil. As long as you and the rest of your idiot kicker friends tie Vox to the Sad Puppies there’s no possible way that the puppies can cut him loose. Vox is the kickers problem, not ours. We really don’t care very much about Vox one way or another. It you kickers who’ve stuck us with him. We will not though abandon and denounce somebody who agrees with us on some issues simply because the people who we are in strong disagreement demand that we do so.
Arthur Chu has a kickstarter.
What he doesn’t seem understand is that it’s not what he looks like, it’s that he refuses to grow up and keeps acting like a childish jerk.
Jim Hines kicks puppies again.
Sorry SJW’s we won’t denounce and we won’t repent.
Hey WE didn’t come up with wooden butthole
Steve Davidson posted a set of demands that the Puppies MUST meet to get into the good graces of the kickers.
Short answer, no. George RR Martin carries the entire blame for not being able to meet his deadlines all by himself.
I was going to drop the Hugo awards until next Spring at least. After all, other than the list for the noms coming up, there shouldn’t have been anything going on. Then THIS showed up from Wired. And it’s the biggest pile of crap that I’ve seen in this entire mess. Which is saying a lot. I’m going to point out that Amy had the opportunity to interview everybody involved on the puppy side, but ignored Sarah Hoyt’s large contribution in favor of the narrative. The same narrative that came out of the Tor press release right after the nominations were announced.
Chuck Gannon’s post about civility has some great points. But here’s a not so great reminder of just what the puppies were dealing with, right out of the box. This piece from April that showed up on my twitter feed, makes the points rather clear.
That’s how Brickmuppet Ken sums up the Hugo Awards.
I wish that the puppy kickers could see that.
