    I have to agree to disagree with you. I do want to clarify a few facts. (Please correct me if I am wrong)

    Full disclosure, I would probably not go to a Dragoncon anyway since there is another event I would rather go to, World Science Fiction Convention ( a con which has give Doctor Who 5 Hugo Awards), on Labor Day weekend. I have been going to the con for over 20 years and the con itself is 70 years old. There have been occasions the cons have not conflicted.

    in 2000,when Kramer was charged, he was removed as Dragoncon con chair. Everyone was cool with that, but we did not know that Kramer was still receiving money from Dragoncon at that time. This fact came to light a few years ago when Kramer sued Dragoncon for profits withheld. At this time Kramer was on parole, so it was “huh” moment but since he was not proven guilty I gave him the benefit of doubt. That ended for me in 2011 when he got arrested in Conneticut. The one thing I am not clear on is if dissolving the company and forming a new company is as hard as others i.e. it could prevent a Dragoncon event for years. It is really that hard? Even so I think the Dragoncon brand has lost its luster and maybe a re-branding would be a good thing.

    You guys did a good discussion on the topic.
