Doin' the Meme Stomp Again

Something Cheryl wrote today reminded me that as we are in Awards Season (albeit that the Hugo nominations are now closed and we await the results to be announced over the Easter weekend conventions), it would be a good idea to remind people of what I wrote last year about the Hugo Awards and what Cheryl wrote about pernicious Awards memes. I wish I'd remembered to re-post this back in January.

I'd like to believe that last year's improved turnout was partially due to convincing more people that they shouldn't disqualify themselves for the wrong reasons.
