More Badgering

I'm afraid that jorhett has written us off and has taken everything more personally than he should, which is unfortunate, but meanwhile the SMOFS e-mail list is merrily burbling away discussing the idea of photo-ID badges -- which nobody over there considers a good idea, either, it seems. Michael Walsh applied a bit of Google-fu, and found the following:

Evecon 4 badge
Evecon 5 badge
Evecon 6 badge
Evecon 7 badge

jorhett claims I'm misquoting him, which is certainly possible. Indeed, it's perfectly possible that what he said was not exactly what I heard. However, he has not responded to my offer to print a correction if he'd tell us what exactly he says he said, but has instead apparently stormed off in a huff. Possibly it surprises people that I don't claim to be infallible, it being oh-so-fannish to never admit being wrong and to assume that one's own experiences are the entire universe.

Seriously, I can state things pretty confidently sometimes. I'm perfectly aware that this comes across as arrogance to some people.
