Al,
I understand what you are saying, but I don't think it is a good idea that you contact vendors to put pressure on the promoter, or in your words, "show organizer".
Here's why, if a show promoter bends to someone or everyone just because he/she doesn't like a certain vendor, you, (the public) would not have a show to go to.

Promoters are in business to sell tables to vendors. They (we) have to try to accomodate everyone. We do not take sides or go by what is politically correct or whatever. Promoters are in business to make money. We have to rent the building, pay electricity, rent the tables, book the dates, pay for advertising, so on and so forth. It is a lot of work.

There are vendors who we do not let vend, but we are NOT influenced by what the vendors say. We prohibit people from vending (and it is our call, not an email campaign) who we find are questionable or people who owe us money from previous shows or people who have ripped us off.

Our policy is that we DO NOT allow venomoiders to vend. That is OUR call, if David Hess wants to allow it, then that's HIS call.

I am a show promoter (www.Texasreptiles.com) and I understand and respect what other promoters allow. It doesn't mean I have to agree with it, but I respect them because I know what hard work it is to put shows on.
So, really what I am saying, is a promoter cannot stay alive and put on shows for the public just because you or someone else doesn't like a certain vendor.I'm sure the "venomoiders" are doing business, otherwise they would not continue to do that show.

I suggest, if you don't like the Hamburg shows because they allow venomoids, then don't go. (they won't miss you)
Shows go on despite YOUR feelings about that particular show.
Hell, I don't like the war, but it still goes on.
