Thanks Mooz, I needed that!

To be honest, I got nothing but negativity from them and I kept hearing harsh remarks and getting pushed around. I was NOT happy!

The idea of having faith and religion as two seperate things was probably the best point put across in Dogma. (Yes, I really do take up any chance to plug Kevin Smith movies - now go watch Jersey Girl! All of you! >=D)

yep that was me that got call "dirty f*cking goth" & a few other things from her mates that I am used to hearing from chavs, anyway when I punch the girl that pulled my hair, it just turned into a doging each other up competition till they move out of my way so I could get my chicken & chips, I bet they didnt think I would retaliate the way I did.


The other event put me of in going into the expo itself, but when I was in expo looking around some people from the other event was just giving some of the Dealer abuse.


*High fives* I must say I'm glad she got what she deserved. Good to know you're ok too, I dread to think what would've happened if it was someone who couldn't look after themselves as well as you can, I saw some pretty young girls at expo wearing goth/punk clothes. Anime and manga fans are probably the most non-violent group of people I know yet just because we do something that's different we're the ones who gets all the . from other people.

I feel sorry for the dealers, it's not like they're even in costumes or anything they're just there to try and make a big of money.


geuss they learn never get in a way of me & my food.

I bet they been shouting abuse & stuff at people all night & didnt think anyone would dair fight back, as most anime/manga are softies & wouldn't dair retaliate incase off making things worst.
simpley put. some people fear what is different & will aways change what they fear, if they cant change it then its evil to them & needs to be desroty.

I got so many dirty looks from the women there when I was in I-No xD I was probably called some horrible things but shmeeehhh I dont care xD

I personally find the attitudes of the people there disgusting, and a simple visit to the chicken shop was made so much worse by them cutting in line, being rude to the men working there and generally being anti social and nasty to everyone who wasnt part of their little "Peace and Unity" bullsh*t.

Hearing now that there was violence involved makes it all so much worse too.

Wow, I never experienced anything negative from the other convention, but I guess being dressed as a cute smiley fox or being in normal clothes doesn't invoke much wrath. I did get some bad vibes from one woman at Prince Regent DLR ("Are you a man? *paedophile-suspicion sneer*"), but her four kids wanted to play with the big fox so she gave up. :lol:

"Peace and Unity"? Puh. I wouldn't be surprised if ExCel never invite them back. What a joke.

*nod*

I did get some nasty looks and muttering, actually. I brushed it off, but it was probably my costume that caused it. I don't go to the event to be verbally abused by people I don't know, so I wasn't happy with that, but I was determined I wouldn't let them ruin my day, as it was getting bad enough already with the dislocations and all :P

I must be lucky..All I got was positives from them...ironic because I was holding real weapons and thier eyes lit up as I drew em out XD. Peace and unity my . lol, more like WEAPONS R US.

That preacher on Sunday outside..who was saying 'DEATH TO ALL EXCEPT ISLAM' / whatever extremist stuff...yeah..I would say what I did to shut him up for 1-2 mins but I don't think it safe to say here >_>.

Lets just say I was tired, angry enough as it is and him saying something about the jews (my father is a jew and lot of his ancestors perished in the Holocaust) drew me to my final point.

X_X; Yes, and why were the Expo-goers not having our bags searched? Because our group were not involved in the stabbing the previous night, and we've never caused significant trouble with the venue. *shakes head in disbelief*

If she's "writing to the establishment", so should all of us who have experienced verbal abuse and such from their exhibition's group. It was a big mistake by ExCeL to let these two events be scheduled on the same weekend, even though our group were not causing trouble to the others.

Did you go through the wrong doors? The left doors were for their event and right doors for ours on the sunday.

I went in through the doors nearest the DLR side, as you come across the walkway, I did'nt see any signs telling me otherwise , nor did anyone tell me that there was seperate doors for the different events.

Well there wasnt but it was pretty obvious when you see everyone for the con going in the right doors and the bag checkers at the left doors, I personally saw the line of peace and unity people and the bag checkers at the left doors and thought 'off to the right doors' they had people stopping peace and unity people going in the right doors too.

the bag checking was purely for the 'Peace and Unity' Event.

Correct it was just for that show.

I think this thread has been debating this issue enough. Excel are aware that there were issues and sometimes timing events is difficult.

I am closing the thread now. I think people will understand.
