Let's cut the bullshit about blacklists for a second.

Let's cut the bullshit about blacklists for a second.

Blacklist - A blacklist (or black list) is a list or register of entities or people who, for one reason or another, are being denied a particular privilege, service, mobility, access or recognition. As a verb, to blacklist can mean to deny someone work in a particular field, or to ostracize a person from a certain social circle."

- Wikipedia

I want to get real about "blacklisting" for a second, and only because I've heard it come up several times over the last few days.

There's a lot of talk about a "silent majority" of AEA members being afraid to voice their opinion one way or another about the upcoming vote about the 99-Seat Agreement, because they're afraid of being blacklisted.
