BQotW #273: What was your biggest "headache" at work?
BQotW #274:

xx. Douggie Sharp. Another movie question, why do people get upset about tropes or at least view them negatively? A lot of times tropes are the foundation of the genre, like a Hallmark Christmas movie, you know what you are going to get. So why the negative view on them? Rival Guy. Scott: What do you wish you knew before you moved to England? Both about preparing for the move itself, and for life in the UK.

xx. Casey Lee. You guys okay? How are you weathering everything?

xx. James Peters. With Blizzcon online this year, and the resounding feedback being "This could have been an e-mail", I was wondering what conventions really do benefit from happening in person. On the other hand, what conventions or other large in-person events do you feel really SHOULD be digital only going forward??
