I've tried helping various volunteer groups in the past and I fully understand how frustrating it can be. You do something fairly benign to help and it can seem like all you get for it is sour grapes. Im in the cheap seats on this one because ive not been to HB Con yet. Having said that, I wonder if they polled the idea first. Seems like it would have been pretty easy to send out a random sample poll.
Honestly though, is Hombrew Con something so hideous that we need to get all lathered up over it? I say... ABSOLUTELY! Being overcome by righteous indignation is what being an AMERICAN homebrewer is all about. First they came for my stirplate and I said nothing. They they took my 90 min boil, and still I said nothing. But I will not go quietly into the night! I will not go to a Homebrew Con without a fight! I will shout "NHC, NHC, NHC!" with all my might! My god man, where will our traditions be if we fail to do the same things we always do?
