Someone who claimed to be from Kumoricon sent me an abusive instant message this weekend. When i greeted them, they called me a crackhead!

The Instant Message links are not here to be abused, and neither are the fans. Is this the kind of behvior I can expect from people com\nnected from Kumoricon? If so, then why should I go to your convention?

For the most part, no, you won't find members/attendee's of Kumori Con using the IM links for abuse.

But there are always sleaze bags on the internet, and Kumori Con can't police every single person who even looks at the Kumori Con page.  If you are worried about further abuse, you could just take down your IM link, and pm your IM name/s to people you think need it, or friend personally.

And, of course, block said abusive user.

But, all in all, Kumori Con is a MUCH friendlier Con than most.  

Hopefully the IM wasn't because of mistaken identity, you'd be surprised how friends greet each other sometimes. ^.^; (I once thought a member of a different forum was a close friend of mine, and it wasn't until a month later I realized that the person wasn't even related to my friend.  ^.^; )
No, I'm not insane.  I'm just... happy.

Please dont let this IM reflect on kumoricon.  as stated the internet is full of those who enjoy harassing others.  Thus why they created the block user for all IM services (or the wonderful warn button for AIM) .  

I know I cant speak for everyone but from what iv seen and those who have taken the time to message me, this place is full of friendly funloveing anime fans.  keep an open mind and shrug off those annoying IM abusers.
