I don't know that I can provide links. I mean, sometimes what the sad puppies say is they just wanted to promote diversity. But actual history is they did things like actively invite Vox Day on board. So... I'm finding myself in a skeptical position.

I admit, it's really hard for me to see the pro-diversity agendum I had hoped you were hinting at when alluding,

"[And I want to acknowledge here that some people who supported the sad puppies campaign would not characterize their actions as anti-anyone so much as pro- more diverse participation in the Hugo Awards...]"

This whole movement just strikes me as being cartoonishly, melodramatically evil and stupid. The author in me rejects the notion that I am understanding it correctly, the same way my inner editor wanted to go after the League of Evil Mutants with a blue pencil. No-one thinks of themselves that way... there is just no way a human being can lack self-awareness on that level.

... or so I'd hoped. The more I read of what I call the "Unhousebroken" slate, the more I find this notion challenged.
