I don't really mind the con stuff because most panels have a tongue-in-cheek, jokey atmosphere to them where you aren't supposed to take anything too seriously. A panelist gets asked a question, whether by a reader or another panelist, and their answer's as likely to be a joke as a serious one ("What DC character that you haven't worked on would you be most interested in writing?" "Raggedy Anne." Cue audience guffaw.)

It's why I don't really have any interest in going to cons. The aim seems to be to have a good time more than it is to inform. Don't get me wrong, I understand why they do it. Most of the audiences clearly has a blast, judging by the laughter. Heck, I laugh, too. But when I leave, I feel disappointed because if I wanted to have a good time cracking joke, I could have just hung out with a few friends. I didn't travel miles and pay for a ticket just so I could do what I can do for free back home.

But that's why I don't really mind the aforementioned kind of comments at con panels. It's when they take it outside that tongue-in-cheek atmosphere that it's annoying, like here with this exchange program.
