Okay, that explains the dickishness behavior last night... but it doesn't exonerate you or GamerPolitics. First of all, GamerPolitics may be owned by ECA but is it fully controlled by ECA? I doubt it, especially when it abides by industry standard disclosure showing it's link to ECA when it reports on ECA in a story. It's what C|NET does when it reports on CBS (because it's owned by CBS). Most major news organizations have such disclosures. I don't treat GP as "ECA's propaganda department" but as "a politics/free speech/gaming blog owned by ECA." Second, how can GP do it's research? You don't list your publications in various magazines and newspapers like Randall Schwartz or even Jerry Pournelle does. Your past appearances and speeches are scrolled off your blog. The ones you quote are ether at gaming conferences (PAX) which is equal to preaching to the choir, or to the vague reference of "various media"... which circles back to "Okay, which ones... oh look, there's no listing." So GP basically was in the middle of doing the research, and you weren't helping any. To be a true advocate for gamers, you need to start publishing your past speeches, and where you spoke -- in other words, you must be traceable (your actions provable in court) and quotable ("Wil Wheaton said that in his speech at PAX. You can get a copy on his site"). Did you only stick with gaming, comic, sci-fi, or other geek-oriented conferences? You need to reach out to others outside the "geek-o-sphere." Anything else, and you're just be a forgetable pundit.

Overall, I was annoyed. But I won't repeat my long rant here. It's over at http://strredwolf.livejournal.com/528535.html and solidly deserves my "You interrupted my coffee for this?" logo. Your performance as Ted Kord, however, was perfect and was actually the highlights of the episode. We could use more episodes of the Ted Kord Blue Beetle. Now only if they can improve the writing on the rest and make Bats' face less flat... oooooh the days of Paul Dini's Batman: The Animated Series.

Humping anyone isn't a salute, it's an shootable offence. I recommend the 30-aught-6. No, fursuiters should do a military salute infront of Wil instead; this is why I encourage an escort by the Dorsai Irregulars.

"Furries give me the creeps, and I've had some random dude dressed up in a fucking fursuit try to hump my leg enough times to feel pretty comfortable saying that." We call those fursuiters who hump legs without permission one thing: PERVERTS. We need to get you to Anthrocon, then, with escorts by the Dorsai Irregulars. I shall propose that if you come, that all fursuiters only salute you unless you give permission. Anyone who tries to hump you give permission for the DI's to kill them (or you to shoot them). Ether way, I agree -- the guy should of watched for a sign of acceptance. Anything else is assault and should of been taken up with the convention staff.
