And there was much drama...

Sturm-und-drang erupted on furcon after the convention posted a survey about future hotel planning and a possible move. Well, a teensy bit of sturm-und-drang.

There was a comment on the OP's journal, though.

"...The DoubleTree will not be hosting any more conventions" is not true. Please stop spreading this rumor. This isn't good for FC or any other convention doing business with the DoubleTree.

The DoubleTree has signed contracts with several new conventions (I'm involved in one of them) and has signed new contracts with several existing conventions using their space. Just a few months ago they participated in a San Jose Convention and Visitors Bureau reception promoting San Jose hotels (including the downtown hotels) to "fannish" convention runners. There is no evidence to support the rumor that the DoubleTree is kicking out our sort of conventions.

Misinformation all over the place in that one. I'm grateful that he acknowledged the point I was making when I corrected his errors regarding Burning Man, and edited that out of both versions of his post - and further grateful that he didn't delete my comment thread when he did so. (Though I should probably check and see if it's still there now.)

And if he thought I was throwing things in his face, he should cound his blessings I didn't grade him on spelling. My $DEITY....

And of course, no gripe about spelling is complete without a spelling error.

There is nothing like the sturm und drang caused by someone asking a question.
