Okay, I've got a different suggestion instead of the mandatory buddy system.
Basically, here's my idea: While we're at the convention, do whatever the fuck you want. Hump the walls. Hump other people that want to be humped. Hump the ground, I don't care--go off on your own or with whoever's going to see the same thing. It's your business--when you leave the Convention Center to go back to the hotel or to grab something to eat--find someone to go with you. The Con itself is pretty safe, but Baltimore is another story. It's a big, big city and a lot can happen if you're by yourself.
Like I told Anuj: I'm not trying to be anybody's parents or anything, I'd just rather deal with "What Ifs" than "Oh, Shits," you know? I want everyone going to have fun and make this year better than the rest, so if we can adhere to some kind of system where we'll all stay safe AND have a good time, it'll turn out wonderfully.
Don't like the idea? Suggest something else. Cell phones will be fairly unreliable in the center, just to let you know; the amount of noise and signal strength make them kind of a liability to pin our communication on.
I know you guys don't like rules, but we're gonna be almost 500 miles away from home, and if we get some guidelines sorted out, it'll be a safe, fun time for everyone going.
