Thats human nature for ya. Humans always seem to put negatives on some pedestal compared to the much more good they experience in their lives because it is not common for bad things to happen in life. Besides, she has family, other cons, and maybe shes a bit ponied out
I do think theres a bit too much cons from a perspective of a person who probably will never attend one and from a guest's perspective but for the people who can and want to but cant do long distance travels to the big ones, i can see why smaller cons exist.
I hope future cons, small or big wont rely on the big name VAs asmuch because i think my favorite sections from cons are the writing (outside of "How did you get into FiM?") and production panels. The VA's, while having their moments (i.e. Andrea Libman going "Yay"), are generally boring imo and dont add much to the actual show as much as the writers and production staff who generally know more of the show than the VAs. Not that i expect the VAs to know everything from the show, im just saying the production staff and wrtiers are more knowledgeable about their shit, the process of writing or animation is more interesting than what kind of tea a VA drinks, and i like Behind the Scenes stuff (like on DVDs)
Edit: And seeing people like (hopefully) Kathleen Barr and other lesser known VAs are a quite nice change of pace than always seeing Tara. Yeah, we'll still get the same "Hw did you get into FiM" "Do you watch it and call yourself a brony?" And so on but at least it's different people
