As the questions are being asked, I decided to email PyrateCon’s Director this morning to see what the latest news was (being as the “PyrateCon in Jeopardy” message has been the last word since September.) I instantly received this auto-generated message, quoted in its entirety and verbatim:
Thank you for your interest in the Worlds Famous Pyratecon, unfortunately because of the current economy Pyratecon will not happen in 2010 but will continue in 2011, we will put your name and or company name in our database,also if you haven’t done so please go to www.pyratecon.com and register for the news letter for updates .Again thank you for your interest in Pyratecon
So there you have it. Feel free to discuss, but please keep any “so and so did this and so and so did that” crap to yourselves – I’ve felt from the beginning that the PyrateCon turmoil would manage to sort itself out without the need for online feuds and rumor mills, and I stand by that belief.
