synecdochic and I are modding a panel at con.txt and--you know, let me paste.
So, seperis and I have been tapped to co-mod a panel at con.txt -- "Fannish Norms: Square Pegs Unite!" -- and we're going to take it in the direction of discussing what happens when you hold drastically differing opinions about hotbutton issues than the current zeitgeist of your fandom or fandom in general. We're looking to see if we can come up with a working model of how to handle "Unpopular Opinions" without it turning into wank in .03 seconds or less, and we're also going to discuss the Unwritten Rules that every fandom -- and fandom as a whole -- evolves. (Because man, the rules are complex and byzantine...)....

So we're looking for the hot button issues. If you have an opinion--heh, like that's something fangirls don't have, and very vocally, too--please jog over here to syne's lj and leave your thoughts on yaoi what you think are the big buttons in fandom. This is like an Unpopular Opinions Meme, but um, not so much. But you can number them. Everyone loves numbers.

Again. Right here.

Done. Typing the list raised my blood pressure.

*sends puppies* You are awesome. *hugs you a lot*

(Deleted comment)
fixed. I always miss that first c.

Okay, I went and posted. Had to think for a while - you know how I am about kerfluffles (as in I only find out about them three months after they are over with). LOL

Made comment. I think it'll be a great panel.

Thank you! *glee* We're hoping so.

So when/where is con.txt? 'Cause I'd love to go, just to see this panel.

it's June 13 through 16. I think their website went down ysterday, the last day of sign-ups, but if you're interested, you can probably email the mods about it.

I wanna go to con.text, just for this panel!!!!!!!!

I'm hoping we don't fall flat on our faces.

...I post under my not-recently-fannish identity? :D

Re: Am I troll if...

Yes! No! Actually, I *have* seen people fight over this.

Man, I forgot multiple-identity fannish movement. Good one.

Re: Am I troll if...

Heh. I didn't use it. People might think I'm a troll!

I think I laid on five good ones, though. Well, four anyway. Two are redundant.

Dude, con.txt would of course be all of three weeks after I forever leave DC...

I must echo the above comments that I would love to attend con.txt, just on the strength of seeing you and synecdochic, two of my favorite writers, run a panel.

Wow, I'm not going to be able to go but it would be awesome to hear about what was discussed after you come back.
