Another serious note.

But this time it's good news: has initiated the Con Anti-Harassment Project,
...a grass-roots campaign designed to help make conventions safer for everyone. Our aims are to encourage fandom, geek community and other non-business conventions to establish, articulate and act upon anti-harassment policies, especially sexual harassment policies, and to encourage mutual respect among con-goers, guests and staff.
CAHP has a solid three-point action plan with realistic and appropriate goals to help work towards making cons safe and fun for everyone. Check out their campaign here, especially the thorough and well-written FAQ. I totally agree with CAHP's tagline: "Conventions should be fun." This promising grass-roots campaign is a great step forward.
