I really don't want to bring politics in here but their reasoning just feels disappointing. Whatever your position on various issues, I dont see what it has to do with an online gaming event one way or the other. Nor do I want anyone to explain it to me.

I find myself both desperately wanting to know more and desperately not wanting to know more.

I looked into it a bit, out of curiosity. It seems that they had to cancel because a bunch of vendors pulled out of it, not because GAMA took a political position they disagreed with, but because they weren't vocal enough about supporting the political position the vendors wanted supported. I tried to write that as non-political as possible.

I hear you, Jeff. Instead of watching the news at night, I've been watching Star Trek Voyager reruns or Hallmark movies with my wife. Plus a lot more work on the gardens and yard. :)

Vendors pulled out and a fair number of the staff quit from what I am reading.

2020 - the year in which I watch lots of Family Feud and Matchgame 74/75/78.

Welp, those are *game* shows.
