Larry Correia's thread on the Hugo withdrawals:

There's a complete gem in there from "Doug Wardell": http://monsterhunternation.com/2015/04/15/well-this-sucks-2/

Are you suggesting that you thought everyone who voted the Sad Puppies slate read every work they nominated? If so, I think you’re naive.

There's more in there too - including somebody who nominated Kloos so they could get the second book free....

I like this one: I wish others had the required intestinal fortitude to make clear what a horrible human being Vox Day is and to disassociate themselves in no uncertain terms, just the way Marko did. Brad Torgersen’s mealy-mouthed dancing around the issue hasn’t gained him any respect.

No, really, you should still say, Don't read the comments.

I sigh pretty heavily whenever I see people on the right or people on the left accuse people on some other side of a political spectrum of being monolithic. I was conservative in my youth; I'm liberal now. I haven't seen any monoliths on either side, ever. Occasionally I've seen small groups get very organized and have an effect far beyond their size, which is what's happening now with Sad and Rabid Puppies. They still don't turn into a monolith, and they still don't actually represent more book buyers than they did before.

I've just been pointing out to one of the complainers on File 770 that for the side of the rugged individuals who want 'good SF' on the ballot - they sure do use collective nouns a lot....
