Now, I wasn't there, but I know Jay moderately. I'm having trouble envisioning him doing something that would kill a panel.
Your presentation I find a bit off-putting. There are at least two sides to every issue. It almost sounds as if you didn't like hearing the other side. Add in that "Greater good" talk and frankly, it sounds at this end like a panel I'd like to miss.
It does happen. I recall a panel about "What to do with a time machine" that turned into an instant Bush and Christianity bashing panel. As I didn't vote for Bush and am not a Christian, I didn't have a dog in the fight, but I did have friends in the audience who are both, and they certainly felt offended.
Of course, I got the expected silence and completely ignored when I pointed out what everyone rational knows--the first use of a time machine should be to go back to 1932 and shoot that ratf@#k
son of a bitch FDR.
And if in LJ, one should be prepared to dish it out and take it, I would assume panels are the same way...right?
Way to drudge up old drama. Not interested, sorry.
Of course not. You'd have to present a logical case to do so.
