Seriously, Don't Do This at Conventions!

When you are in a public space, do not turn to someone who has wandered up to you and bark out, "private conversation!"  You don't have the right to tell others to fuck off in public space.

The person who did this to me was sitting in a chair talking at normal room voice to two or three others who were sitting in chairs that were at a distance of six or so feet.  The convention is a shared space and no one has the right to tell others to fuck off in public areas.

It has happened before that a staff member who has to have a private conversation cannot leave the area because they are dealing with people or problems that cannot be relocated, and if that was the case even they can say it nicer, but what happened above was on the Monday morning after the con as everyone was leaving, so there are no excuses what so ever.


Person who barked at me, you owe me an apology.

Eeehehe.. *sqweezysqweeze* It's as good a time as any. An importaint time even. One can spend lifetimes worrying about the motivations, choices and poor perceptions of other people. Or they can keep focus in thair own world with thair own friends.

There are more than a fair share of asshats around.  A friend told me he overheard two people making snide comments about me.  Why is it that someone who does not know you and knows nothing about you feels that they have the right to make baseless insinuations?

Talking badly about someone who is not in front of you, can be rude, but sometimes necessary to warn a friend.  However, we live in a culture where the consequences of such conversations are not immediate, are hard to trace, and in many cases don't have direct effects upon the person being slandered because most of us are smart enough to make our own decisions, but barking a command directly at another person in a public place is something for which there is no excuse of ignorance.

Some people are so egocentric that they treat public spaces like they belong to them. Problem is that egocentric assholery is an evolutionary trait, so it would require large-scale genetic engineering to rid mankind of them permanenty.

Well, I've already said I'm all for eugenics.
