For what it is worth, my perception of D*C will always be flavored by a conversation (for lack of a better term) I had with one of the founders/big-wigs ten to fifteen years ago on rec.arts.sf.fandom, where I was basically told I was an idiot for concluding that it was a big pro-run show when my first exposure was very glossy flyers featuring the actors there, and that informed the reader that you buy “tickets” through “ticketmaster.”

Very likely this conversation occurred before I’d even come close to crossing the barrier into SMOFdom, and was still more-or-less a neo-fan.
