OK, sometimes 'they're both from the same country, they must be the same person' *is* valid

I think this has reached the point where nothing new on any side is going to get said and I would like to reclaim 'recent comments' for other subjects so I will be freezing this when I get home tonight

This might affect the author's rebranding except as far as I can tell editors already knew and didn't care.

Does anyone remember what, if any, repercussions there were from Blish revealing himself to be noted critical gadfly William Aethling, Jr.?

I have no idea what Nick means by shenanigans but this bit?
Unfortunately it means no Hugos or Campbells for her.

The odds of her winning a Not a Hugo Campbell Award were always slim because authors get exactly two rolls of the dice for that one but there's the other Not a Hugo Campbell for the novel John W. Campbell would have been least likely to buy while alive and I can assure you if Campbell ever bought a story from a woman from Asia, I am completely unaware of it.

The Hugo, who knows? There was a lot of cane-shaking at Rowling for sullying the grand traditions of our genre with books the general public actually wanted to read and yet she got a rocket.

[A note: due to problems with spam, I have to personally unscreen all anonymous comments and since it is Thanksgiving I cannot promise to be superdiligent about doing that for the next couple of days]

Please link me to evidence that she has remorse for what she said to me--I'm the one who got the dog rape comments. I have not seen it. She has not apologized.

I would love a public acknowledgement and apology. A private one would do--if she remembers who I am, of her many victims. I will even take a general apology as long as it acknowledges her harm done and is not a "I'm sorry if you were hurt" false apology.

Your guilt-tripping apology on her hypothetical behalf means nothing to me, I'm sorry. It is only remorse if she show it, to those she hurt. Not privately to those she wants to convince of her own goodness.
