      Your friendly neighborhood mod here...this place has always been open
      to both praise and gripes of the con. As it says (and always has) on
      our main Yahoo page. If problems aren't brought up for discussion,
      they may never be improved. Just wanted to clarify that.

      What was being stated there, seems to me to be an opinion of someone's
      personal preference as a reason for attending another show. They
      weren't even really griping, and far from outright insulting the con
      or saying anyone shouldn't attend it for those reasons.
