UNC_Samurai: Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker ran into a convention in Pittsburgh.
enik: Wow, reading through these comments it's clear that Fark has LOTS of furries and furry apologists. Yikes. As if most of you weren't pathetic enough already.
Captain Couscous: What I get form the review is that in her mind, "Latin America, Europe and Asia" are shiatholes.

Mister Peejay: ...And now, someone is going to go see who got married that weekend in that city, cross reference it to known hotel executives, then go to their house and poop on the lawn or something. A really rancid, watery, "my god what did I eat that my body created such a horror" poop the likes of which the world has not seen before or since.

Glancing Blow: I feel blessed that I had to look-up what Furries and Bronies are.
Mrtraveler01: One tip for this mother:Don't go to Pittsburgh in June (or whenever they hold that convention)
mrswood: The hotel really should warn guests of any conventions going on that could make for unhappy guests, if only to avoid all of the future problems. I worked in reservations at a big hotel chain and I remember having to advise people of gay rodeo conventions and whatnots.But if I was this reviewer I would have gone to management, demanded a refund and switched hotels.
GentlemanJ: Evidently, choosy moms do not choose Yiff.
Repo Man: I'd be curious to see what happened if, through some odd circumstance, you had a large gathering of furries and juggaloes at the same place and time. Would a juggalo furry be the most hated creature on the internet?
Repo Man: Ok, juggalos are worse.
hockeychick: Methinks this woman is full of shiat. My guess is that she and her snowflakes got there, saw a few people who were dressed in fursuits and freaked out. How many people do you know who randomly swear at children? Unless you grew up in my house not many. And the claim that she never saw the general manager, I guarantee that if the furries were making that much of a ruckus that manager would be there in a heartbeat with cops in tow to calm the fur love-in down.And if she thinks that's bad try going to New Orleans on Labor Day weekend. On your honeymoon.
PacManDreaming: There's only one way to deal with a hotel full of furries:
Noah_Tall: I can summarize the entire problem in one sentence. A direct quote from the review."How did I find out all of these details about this "rave" and what these furry conventions are about? GOOGLE!!!!! "The guy saw some furries walking the hall and the little girls probably thought it was awesome because people were dressed up as animals. Cheer dad probably got all excited and asked if it was a team mascot convention. When told it was a furry convention he went back to his room, googled furry, and encountered rule #34.He should try looking up cheerleader.
Silverstaff: I know it can be annoying to be staying at a hotel at the same time as a convention.When I was a kid, we took a family vacation to Gatlinburg. Apparently the hotel was having some kind of motorcycle convention that weekend. We heard the sounds of revving motorcycles and loud partying all weekend.What is worse is when the hotel decides to sabotage the convention because they don't like it.Apparently, in the mid '90's, FOX decided it wanted a sci-fi space action/adventure TV series. Dirk Benedict had been shopping around to build support for a Battlestar Galactica revival. (Note, this is almost a decade before the new BSG reboot), and would be a continuation of the late 70's series (and ignoring the Galactica 1980 spinoff).FOX was interested in the idea, partly in the idea it had a ready-built fanbase they could use. Name recognition and existing fanbase they thought would be good for ratings. What it would take to seal the deal would be actually showing the network execs just how much fandom existed and how much support was out there. Again, the early days of the web, so it was hard to just point to a big online community.So, there was going to be a big convention for Battlestar Galactica. A 15th anniversary deal as I recall, circa 1994. The execs just had to see it was big and they'd sign for a new series.They had booked a hotel for the convention, and had lots of attendees booked for the convention and most of the surviving cast were going to be there as guests. The problem was that some exec at the hotel chain was getting married that weekend, and he was doing it at one of his hotels. That one. He didn't want a bunch of fanboys running around mucking up his wedding.So, the desk staff started "losing" reservations. Basically whenever fans showed up to check in and it was clear they were there for the convention, their reservation was "lost" and they wouldn't have any rooms available. Lots of fans were turned away, and a good number of th ...
