For the sake of political balance, Timothy has asked if he can also have a minor internet feud on the grounds that me squabbling with Vox Day over IQ is stealing much-needed attention away from Timothy. What follows is, as always, strictly the view of Timothy and not that of this blog.
A certain ‘Cat Rambo’ (and I very much doubt that she is actually a cat) has claimed that the SFWA is not ‘a gelatinous cube‘ that ‘lives in a basement somewhere and looks much like a pale green gelatinous cube, covered with lint and cat hair, and various unguessable things lurk in its murky depths, like discarded typewriter ribbons, empty Johnny Walker Black Label bottles, and that phone charging cable you lost a few weeks ago’
I note the implication made with ‘cat hair’. So yes, I was in the SFWA basement. I did leave some of my hair behind – I’m shedding a bit at the moment, so sue me – and actually I can confirm that the SFWA is not a gelatinous ‘cube’. It is more of a cuboid rather than a cube and more glassy than strictly gelatinous. Alas, the phone charging cable I lost was not there but clearly, the SFWA has it somewhere. The petty theft of important cabling has to stop SFWA!
