  1. …and one of the many Chinese Fans I have worked with who I feel badly for whenever I criticize the Chengdu Bid:

    I really am conflicted over being against that bid while completely supportive and enthusiastic about Chinese Fandom.

    But there it is. Yes! to Chinese Fandom. NO to a Chengdu WorldCon.
