As the Hugo Whinging Continues

What I said earlier this year still stands.

Of course, if we lower the cost of joining Worldcon as a voting member, say down to the cost of a new hardcover SF novel in the US$20-$30 range, the "it costs too much to vote," argument will be replaced by the "you let too many people vote" argument, and probably from the same people. They should just be honest and say what they really mean, which is, "The Hugo Awards should only go to the things I personally like since I'm the only person in the entire world who really matters and the rest of you are just mindless zombies."
