None of us could be happy to hear this. But, at the least, we can try to be 
as understanding as Wolfe himself, who was there and has more reason to be 
offended than anyone (to understate).

Mostly I am interested (and impressed) by the authors he chose to praise in 
the workshop. In time we'll hear from everyone their merits and faults, but 
right now we have the chance to find and read them and decide for ourselves 
ahead of popular opinion. I suggest we take advantage of the opportunity and 
grab hold of (and discuss) these stories before they are chewed up and spit 
out by other reviewers.

As soon as we find out where to find them, anyway.
