This quote made me laugh, and made me think of what the sf/f genre is like sometimes:

Let’s say you have three guys, all of whom love pigs. One loves to eat them, one loves to race them against one another for prizes in the annual Pigathon, one loves to name them and pet them and scratch their chins. They don’t know each other, but then they find one another in a chatroom or something and establish that they all “love pig.” They get together on a Friday evening to all love pigs together, and the first one says to the other two, “hey, so here’s my favorite recipe, what’s yours?”

That’s a group with an incoherent creative agenda.
