Almost the entirety of the past two pages of this thread have been nothing but an argument. As a first-time attendee of Otakon, I found this to be most disheartening.

Fortunately, I managed to get a room at the Sheraton Inner Harbor so at least I won't have to travel far. I'm excited to meet everyone because I don't know a single person who has ever gone to Otakon so I'll have to wander by myself until I meet some people.
