Seen a lot of discussion about this, but it seems from what I've read it's mainly dragoneer and his friends complaining....
just trying to figure out whether its a legtimate complaint or that group bitching...since dragoneer did have an issue with them at a previous con too about standing on his balcony (couldnt find details about it, just that an incident occurred)
now the gist of the complaints is that they were asking loud rooms to be quiet (ok having worked at a hotel, Ive had to do the same thing often, so maybe they were helping out the hotel?)
they were making sure people entering the hotel had a right to be there by showing con badge or room key....dont see a great problem with that either (again this is something a hotel may do during events - heard a reference to FOX news trying to get in the hotel heheh)
problems occurred when people refused to comply or were talking back to security...if a guest was doing that at a hotel I worked at, yes, hotel staff would do the same thing, kick them out or threaten to bring in the police...I've called the police myself several times on guests.
supposedly someone got pushed for being in the way of the fursuit parade, bad if happened...
and the other complaint seems to be they handled the evacuation badly in their opinions....now evacuations are confusing things directing hundreds of people to get out of a building, having had firealarms go off in a hotel, its hard to control and many guests just do whatever they want. (Had one go off after a big wedding party where half the people were drunk --probably similar and a MESS) so give them a break maybe?
so anyone actually go to this thing and witness anything other than dragoneer's lil group of friends?
