Vox Day isn't the only one  
John C. Wright has flounced out of SFWA. He is cruelly mocked.

Thanx to james_nicoll

Hee! I got up early due to stress and bad dreams, and this was the first thing I saw. Beautiful :)

Beale didn't "flounce", he was kicked out for using the Official SFWA twitter feed in a way that's against the Official SFWA Twitter feed's TOU, to disseminate a racist rant.

For comparison, John C Wright, who has also said many offensive and stupid and bigoted things, did not use the Official SFWA Twitter feed to announce them, and so was not kicked out.

This is the difference, even though John C Wright, like Beale and Correia and Hoyt, is deeply invested in pretending not to see it.

Sorry, I was imprecise. I meant to say that Vox Day is not the only one like that. Your distinction is correct.

They're going to create their own SFWA. With blackjack. And hookers.

Leading off with Larry Correia makes it.
