The Trolls of the Hugo Awards

So apparently a bunch of straight, white, conservative guys came up out of their parents' basements and decided to take over the Hugo Awards.

Read about it via Slate - also that's where the image comes from too.

What is so dangerous about open voting. All we can hope is that the agenda being pushed can be combatted, and that people who deserve to win actually win!

It isn't that open voting is bad. It's that the block voting decides what the open-voters get to vote on. So in this case the Sad Puppies are deciding the only things worth voting for are small-minded, homophobic, misogynist and apparently not particularly well-written.
