likes to cop feels, do the creep, and try to force smooches from women at conventions. When stymied, he resorts to silly threats of black magic.

Now you know.

That blog seems down.

Not good. Does he show up at local Boston-area cons?

Exactly what I want to know.

He might or might not, but the Boston con scene already has their own issue (with a guy whose last name makes him sound like a tennis star).

I've read what she wrote, and I don't disagree that non-consensual activity of this nature is unacceptable, but it seems to me that conventions DO have security, and DO have rules, and breaking those rules DO have consequences. I've been to many conventions where security was handled by the Dorsai Irregulars/Klingon Diplomatic Corps, and they wouldn't have tolerated this jerk. Was the convention too cheap to hire DI? Did they think that they could manage without security? Were they too brain-burned by their other duties to work through what should have been done? Or did they just completely forget to have someone running security?

Security eventually escorted him out of the convention and took his badge, but several congoers reported him before they did anything, despite the con's supposed zero tolerance policy. Apparently one incident wasn't enough "proof" for them or something.

The DI and Klingons would not be present at WFC because this is a professionals only, no-costume con, not a fandom con.

WFC says they're working on revising their P&P in the wake of this.

And he creepily looks like a guy who had similar issues here in Montreal. (He's not, though.)

Are you sure? This guy lives in Montreal.

What a creepy douchebag! I hope someone punches him in the face for that mess.

I'm guessing that this is what's running around the Arisia listservs right now.

OY. Which is kind of my final word on the topic.

Dude looks like he smells like pepperoni and stale dragon's-blood oil.
