1) I don’t blame @MaryRobinette for not standing up to GRRM and the Worldcon staff. You have to be a SMOF to take on SMOFs. For me, that meant giving something else up, something important, to spend a part of my life arbitrating fandom gatherings and fandom in general.
2) She’s also tripped over something it took me a couple of years to learn while running conventions. There are factions within the SMOF community. The two biggest groups I had to deal with were the traditionalists and the newbies.
2a)The traditionalists see and run conventions as a party for them and their friends. Awards are given to friends and people they want to impress. Their friends have great leeway.
