    Guys this is getting a bit absurd. Yes it's awful what happened and I hope whoever is responsible gets the book thrown at them. What kind of scumbag does something like this.

    Now that being said, the fact that every single one of you is immediately jumping to the conclusion that it's "Fursecution" is silly. Yes, it could be. But it could also be done by one of the Furcon-goers themselves. Furries are just as petty as non-furs, and there's no reason to deny someone with a bone to pick might not try to poison someone they thought wronged them in the past at some other furry gathering online or not.

    It's also not entirely unreasonable to assume it wasn't someone trying to kill someone else in the hotel, nor does the currently theory of Intentional hold any water until it is proven and a culprit is found guilty.

    So please people, stop doing the reaction everyone expects furries to do until there is proof. The fact that someone in here already went for the Evil Four-Chins route is depressing.

    Just speaking from experience since it was a 4chan poster who pulled the fire alarm on Otakon a few years back.

    You... did read all the posts before jumping to these generalizations... right?

    What kind of idiot would think chlorine is a good idea? Like.. you can smell that shit from a mile away, it's not exactly sneaky.

    Shit just makes it 10x harder to understand when this person and that person are saying this, and "I heard it from a guy on the corner" and etc etc
    If you weren't there or didn't see anything, there's no need to say shit as solid fact!!!!!

    Pretty sure nobody was *actually* harmed though, so it's all good.
    Disregarding those taken away in ambulances if you have a health problem you can be in trouble.

    I found out about this on BookFace. It's terrible and has me feeling worried for those there, hoping everyone is OK.

    I would never of thought to hear something like this at a Furcon let alone a convention in general. This sort of thing shouldn't happen but at the same time I'm not to surprised in this day an age.

    I just hope like everyone else that they find who did this and what was the reason to do such a thing.

    Take care of yourselves out there.

    There are at least five examples setting the overall tone of the thread at that time. There were few attempts to outline otherwise by anyone else. So while I'll admit that it isn't "everyone" and that was improper of me, don't attempt to suggest that I'm making any sort of grand generalization when the tone at present was clear.

    I'm not sure what point you're attempting to make outside of my incorrect use of words so to those deserving vindication you have my apologies.

    Edit: Further edits for correctness, clearly I need to learn to read. Or get some rest. Much more likely the latter of those two.

    It's actually a very simple reason really. Obnoxious nay-sayers annoy me just as much as rabid theorists.
