Wrong is wrong....as a long time Con goer this kind of attitude is unacceptable. taking a private conversation/ comment public is NOT a mistake..it is a deliberate attempt to publicly shame a person, no matter the gender...which is bulling... in this day and age it is beyond belief that the person who did so could not realize they were doing something wrong.. much less a person place in authority for an event. Totally unprofessional and it speaks volumes of his/ her character. If this is not put right by the organizing managing group I can't see this boding well for the Con in future. This person should not be in any way allowed to continue on staff..in ANY capacity.
If CCCC were serious about their harassment policy, these 2 would not be on staff already.
If CCCC is serious about their policies they need to remove these individuals from their staff.

- Thirty plus, AWESOME! Keep it coming you wonderful savvy people!
- as a con goer as well as someone who has volunteered this is ridiculous. Childish, abhorent behaviour that has no place in geekdom. perhaps the first year will be the last at this rate.
- This is a prime example of what board members of a con should keep an eye on. There were a few cons that went belly up cause of behavior and actions like this taken by individual(s) who let the power of being on a board go to their heads. By all means CCCC's board should not condone the individuals actions taken when a person was requesting a refund cause she didn't feel safe? And said person(s) reacted by publicly shaming and bulling the customer?? I wouldn't be surprised if attendance is very low to non existent. But CCCC's board should make a public statement without the person(s) input on it.
