I Was Wrong…

I’d called this one as soon as word came that Laura Mixon was on the ballot. But I confess, I actually did think I had a fair shot at it. The number of people that came out to back me was really heartening. And if you look at the posts from some of the big wheels on the other side, they really did seem to think that a couple of puppies would get through. I was among the puppy nominees that were least offensive to the anti-puppies… so if some of us got through, I figured I’d be among them.
It’s silly now in retrospect, but I really was both surprised and disappointed by the results the night before last. I’d actually thought that the File770 commentariat and all those people posting their ballots on Live Journal were a minority that was simply not representative of fandom at large.
But I was wrong.
Ah well, live and learn. Congrats to the winners. Congrats to the Anti-puppies for running such an effective campaign. See y’all next year for round four!
