AINews Does Not Endorse Adultcon

Excuse me if I'm busy! Three days delay to get a press release up and guess what? The only one who has EVER threatened, bribed, extorted, been rude or irritating in any way is the man behind Adultcon. I've been as much as a week behind at times and have had professional Industry PR people request in email politely if I had received their release. Sometimes a call will come in to see if I'm OK because it seems like there has been an unusually long time between updates. I thank those who know I'm speaking of them for their kindness, caring and tact.
Demanding additional press (that they have been getting for free) instead of being thankful for the service we provide rubs me the wrong way. I'm glad to help good people who have gratitude and I see helping others in the Industry. I try and distance myself from companies and individuals who are out for themselves at the cost of my friends, associates and the Adult Industry as a whole. I find Adultcon in the latter category.
In view of the unprofessional behavior of those behind Adultcon, Adult Industry News will not attend this or future Adultcons, will not accept press advertising Adultcon from any third party, and will review existing references to Adultcon in the nearly 5000 stories in our database to decide if they shall stay. (There were currently 16 stories about Adultcon in the database. If the links below are dead that means they are gone!)
My apologies to those who will be attending Adultcon and have sent in press advertising that they will be there.
