I have never been to DragonCon, and if I were to go, it would be primarily to revel in the rumored debauchery and take many, many photographs of the many, many cosplayers. If this makes me a bad person, I am willing to accept that. But according to this Atlanta Magazine profile, it does not make as bad a person as Ed Kramer, who founded DragonCon, still receives a significant percentage of its profits, and has been avoiding trial on charges of child molestation for more than a decade. (Notice I didn’t say avoiding charges, or avoiding arrest. He’s avoiding trial. Read the profile before you start arguing with me.)
I really hope they get around to successfully kicking him out of the corporation so I can go back to drooling at DragonCon Flickr groups without feeling guilty. Hey, maybe they’ll be motivated to do that if we circulate this article! Just a thought.
