I’ve been reading quite a few livejournals out there where JTAF was concerned. I’ll be the first to admit it wasn’t the best show, but it wasn’t the worst show, either. Slinging mud at the people who gave up a significant portion of their free time to put it together, especially when a majority of those same people also staff the other bay area conventions, is really bad form and gives the ‘offending’ convention a really bad name. If you don’t like the show, don’t go, but don’t bash the same work force you use for choosing to support us. Don’t call them Fanimecon rejects, don’t call them retards, don’t call them worthless. They will find out, and they will react accordingly.
Anyone… anyone who tries to score points with their friends by belittling the tremendous, selfless, and amazing efforts of others, shall sacrifice my respect for them. It’s interesting to see the true colors of those I previously considered friends.
