Anyone else hear about this and/or been following it? It appears a group very similar to GamersGate has gain significant control over the voting process for the Hugo awards. They felt there was too many progressives (read as non-white, gay accepting, women, etc) being awarded and decided to do something about it. One article I read said that the Hugo always had some political factor to it, but now it's almost entirely political. What they do is block vote for what they want and because voting participation is not strong (maybe several thousand considering 10,000 people are allowed to vote), it skews the process. Some authors are rejecting nominations because of this.
