And I remember Locutus saying "What does this have to do with anything anyone is saying in the boycott or the thread, because no one is calling for his book, movie, or other writings to be made illegal?" People just think Card is an anus tart, not that he should be silenced by the government.
Already we've seen at least one person in this thread give the uninformed view that Ender's Game is a homophobic novel. I don't think falsities like that should be perpetuated.
Okay, so correct the inaccuracies. I've got no problem with that. Ender's Game was one of my favorite novels growing up. Of course, that was before I knew the author was a tool, but still. Good book, and not homophobic like its creator.

But comparing either the boycott or what people have said in this thread with government censorship is an even bigger inaccuracy then being mistaken about the content of the novel. You can't correct inaccuracy by piling on some more.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
