While it is sad to see such spats (really), I think it reinforces my general feeling of disquiet at such "awards". They give scope for insult/injury and general unfairness and can only cause disruption of the sort seen here. If there'd been either (a). No award or (b). If the nominations had been more "transparent" then some of these issues could have been avoided.

I don't know why Peter was excluded from this list (there may well have been other notable omissions as well worthy of comment), point is that I think Peter *does* have a fair reason for feeling slighted. Granted hollering about it publically may not be the best way of handling it - but then the nomination list in which his name was *excluded* was just as public.

I can't believe it is beyond the wit of the people running Drobe to come up with a *fair* and *transparent* nomination process - at least then whatever is the outcome all involved can feel at least they were given a *fair* chance. That notwidthstanding I do believe awards create more problems than they solve..... perhaps this current situation is all the evidence needed to prove that point.
