Most of my other threads are depressing as hell. I need the funny so here you lot go.

As we all know, furries are basically just a collection of mentally unstable, attention seeking, sex fiends LARPing as animals. No doubt that even when left to their own devices, they can find some way of garnering attention (see: this entire section of the Farms). But what happens when you take hundreds / thousands of them, give them private rooms, & let them do whatever the fuck they want?

Bad things.
Bad things happen.
Whether it's drug overdoses (sometimes happening in-suit), child / animal abuse, sexual assault, vandalism, or whatever else you could possibly imagine - if you can think it, furries have probably done it. Let's start off the thread strong with the most prominent examples in the last decade.

Rain Furrest 2015
Most people on the Farms (and the internet as a whole) are largely familiar with the event due to the video made by Internet Historian:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmULc5VANsw / https://archive.vn/wip/OqvpV

As a brief recap though:

Rain Furrest is a convention that took place typically around late Sept / early Oct that was hosted at the Hilton SeaTac airport. The location was prime due to it being located right across the street from SeaTac Airport and right next to the Light Rail - a local train system running from downtown Seattle to the airport. The rail has been extended to reach further south since then. As such, traveling to the convention, especially for those on the west coast, was made relatively easy. That being said, the convention was one of, if not THE MOST, prolific cons when it came to degeneracy. This was because of the over-abundance of ABDL and other hardcore kinks that were openly embraced in public con space. It was very common to see people walking around in Pup Gear, murrsuits, and even just in diapers (or a combination of the 3).

So why is this year in particular so prolific?
Because this was the year it was shut down. For good.

Why?
Let's have a look

Worth noting that post-Kero leaks, it's likely that Rainfurrest was used as meeting grounds for West Coast and East Coast zoos. This pic did not age well AT ALL.

To recap:
  • Elevator was broken because people were using their feet to press (kick) the buttons
  • The hot tub was destroyed by dumping towels into the tub itself as well as rolling + stuffing them into the pump
  • A toilet had its screws loosened which resulted in a flood causing water damage to nearby rooms & the servers located in the basement
  • Food was being tossed around and left on the ground
  • Drugs were being sold & used at the con
    • This resulted in several arrests as well as an overdose
  • Diaperfurs were:
    • Allowed to roam the hall in soiled diapers
    • disposing their used diapers outside by either just tossing them wherever or collecting huge trashbags of them (and then not putting said bags in the dumpster)
  • Someone took pics of 2 zoosadists outed in the Kero Leaks pissing while in-suit
  • A (potentially) false rumor was spread the a furry drilled gloryholes in the bathroom
  • Ex-staff member committed sexual assault
  • Current staff member committed physical assault
  • And more!
These are just the ones I can verify through tweets. There are more but due to certain tweets being deleted with no archives available, I can't make a definitive statement. A week or so after the con wrapped up, The Stranger, a local Seattle shitrag that specializes in normalizing degenerate behavior " LGBTQ+ " topics wrote a fluff piece for the convention. I'll touch on why this is important later but you can read an archived version here.

The Fallout
After the con concluded, the event garnered damage costs in upwards of $150K, surpassing the operation costs of all other conventions hosted that year combined. As a result, the Hilton cancelled their partnership with RAin

Attempts were made to move the venue to several different locations, including Spokane, but this would ultimately prove fruitless. An ex-board member sent letters to every venue within a 50 mile radius, writing in vivid detail the issues hosting the next Rainfurrest would provide for them. As such, no one would take their offer. Rumor has it that any event with the word " furry " in it is now instantly rejected.

Furries were not keen to hold back criticism / hostility towards the RAin Board given the situation they were in. A postmortem (presumably written by an ex-staff member) can be read here.
TL;DR:
  • It was staff's fault the convention died because for the past 5 years, they refused to curb problem people from doing stupid shit.
  • Property damage became prevalent in 2011 and continued onward. They never paid for the damages so they just kept accruing over time
  • The head of the board refused to update outdated policies such as harassment / drug consumption / ect. & would not hold anyone accountable for their actions by revoking badges.
  • Vastly understaffed for the size of their events
  • How they handled things after the con publicly and privately was stupid af
There was also this tweet which I found funny

Last note: The guy who recorded the video of the ex-board member of RAin discussing what happened at the 2016 Vancoufur panel was none other than local lolcow KhordKitty / Gabriel Jeremy Sickel. Internet Historian insinuated that whoever recorded the video was responsible for dumping the used diapers all over the place but I can say for a fact that's not true. Gabe was not a member of the board and had a bit of a shitfit (pun intended) about the vandalism done by the diaperfurs. His ex-wife was a volunteer for the con but she was only a general staff member. A PDF of the Con Staff book will be at the bottom of the OP

Here's the video


Anthro Northwest (2016/2017)
This section is being written after RF because the RAin Board got pretty pissed off about ANW potentially taking their place & essentially doing it better.
1589242084446.png
Archive

I think this bitter resentment came from the fact that not only could they successfully secure an event, but they managed to get an event space in DOWNTOWN Seattle (which is really fucking expensive). This should've been impossible due to previous restrictions stated but since ANW was registered as " historical celebration of anthropomorphic art " rather than " furry " they managed to get away with it.

The Tea

Koji Fox & Viro Science Collie of the formerly notable furry podcast Feral Attraction got into a dispute with ANW staff before the event ever took place about a policy banning fetish gear at the con. This included collars which really got them into a tizzy.


The policy against collars was ultimately reversed but furries simply found more things to bitch about. To be fair, I'm going to blame the event organizer partially for not expecting this backlash. He tried to make a " family-friendly " convention in the most degenerate section of the country. The vast majority of the locals were spoiled by Rainfurrest which let them essentially run wild with their kink bs. He should've been prepared for this and stood his ground. Also I really, really don't see furry as a " family friendly " thing. Everyone on this board agrees with that sentiment, I'm sure.

Anyways, one such policy furries took issue with was that the staff wanted to ban suits that might scare young children.


Then came the conspiracy theory that because the event organizer happened to be religious, he was trying to brainwash / kinkshame BDSM furries into not being such godless heathens (which, tbf, they could probably use the proselytizing). Ironic though when one of the furries making these claims is a cub furry who's friends with Dog Rapist Cupid the Deer / Matthew Grabowsky.


ANW did eventually respond with the following:

The Actual Con
The con was approved so eventually it actually went down. So what happened?

Not as much as you'd expect. Half the people that bitched about it on Twitter wound up going anyways, including Viro. Had a pic of this but since Viro went DFE after numerous sexual assault allegations, I don't have it anymore.

That being said, the previous drama did impact the guests the con attempted to invite:

I think in this instance, CC didn't want to come due to the " No Scary Suits " policy & felt personally attacked.

One thing people flipped their shit over was the ballpit.
1589243632811.png
Archive

1589243666998.png
Archive

After the pit was deflated by the owner, a rumor was spread around (presumably by a group of assblasted ABDL furries who weren't allowed to attend the con) that it was being removed due to a diaper being thrown in it. The owner later refuted the rumor by tweeting this out.
1589243730328.png
Archive
All well and good until you see who provided the ball pit. Well if it isn't the one of many dog fuckers Nacho Doggo.
I hope whoever played in that pit washed THEIR balls immediately after. Fucking gross.

Speaking of people / groups who were banned from the convention. If you were banned from a previous convention, you had to file for an appeal with the board. Guess who that included:

Sibe's thread

Apparently there were people banned from the convention, the AnthroNW forum, and/or blocked on Twitter for being critical of the event. Idk how much of that is true since a lot of people’s “ criticisms “ were just saying they were gay or mad that they should abstain from swearing (which is a rule at practically every convention)

Next, CNN was allowed into the con to record a documentary. When you checked into the con and claimed your badge, you were given a waiver to opt in to the program. Keyword: in. Not out. People got these confused and assumed that CNN was going to just be barging in with cameras in everyone’s faces. Funny how everyone was cool when The Stranger reporter was allowed to roam free and do his shit but it's suddenly a problem because it's at ANW.

Ultimately, this drama also fizzled out into a big nothing burger as it was, yet again, another fucking fluff piece to cover up the fandom's gross side.

Last tidbit is just Junius being Junius - interjecting Altfurry fearmongering into every little thing with zero evidence to back it up.

RMFC 2016
RMFC was a con that took place in Denver, CO up until 2016 due to the events that happened that year & the months following.
TL;DR: Furry Raiders booked a shit ton of rooms out, didn't use most of them, & got the entire fandom to sperg out on them through death threats. DeoTasDevil made threat saying something along the lines of " lol can't wait to punch Nazi! " to which someone pointed out that CO is a concealed carry state. She lost her shit and claimed that she was being threatened as a result. Apparently the con didn't take action against either side for this as Deo went on to cry about how Furry Raiders were still permitted to attend the convention (had it not been cancelled).

Said threats (from both parties) had the unintended consequence of raising the cost of security to an amount that outweighed the cost of hosting the convention ($22K USD). As a result, it was permanently shut down. It's likely that the venue which hosted it spread the word to other con spaces in order to prevent booking as well. Deo & DogPatch press then dug into some other shady shit the convention was doing & wrote articles about it. Deo got sent a C&D from an ex-staffer (who was convicted on sexual acts w/ a minor back in 1993). Literally nothing happened though aside from Deo getting showered with asspats for being " a victim "

One of the leaders of Furry Raiders shared how the rooms were booked in advance. Apparently they booked before the Convention's block rates were posted.
(need to find this image again)

Staff post on the now defunct Google+ page discussing the overbooking issue had yet to be resolved as of April 1st, 2016.

Con Drama Part 2: Electric Boogaloo

#Plushgate

TL;DR BLFC19, CrowzPerch & Stiltpup lost a $300 plush of her fursona. They harassed con attendees, con staff, hotel staff, & even the police to find it. Accused someone of stealing it & demanded the hotel release the footage from CCTV. Hotel said no. She flipped her shit even harder & convinced a bunch of people to review bomb the hotel. Apparently Crowz is a Cub fetishist & her sona / plush was how she lived out her fetish. People did NOT take kindly to it.

Initial post by Stiltpup, her having an emotional breakdown about the plush, & a few statements about the situation

I don't like playing Devil's Advocate for speds but I feel like showing these tweets are important. Just proves that furries were looking on any reason to shit on the two for causing so much tension at the con. Don't get me wrong, they deserve the dirt slung at them for how they reacted over losing a doll but I don't like people getting attacked over baseless shit.

This section is just going to recap some of the threats made towards the con. There's a couple and the events of some are confusing to say the least so I'm just going to make it MORE confusing by grouping them together.
Because fuck you.
That's why.


MFF 14 Chlorine Gas Attack

Going to start off this part with the classics


TL;DR Chlorine Gas was released from a broken container on the 10th floor of the hotel. Police investigation concluded it was an attack but closed the investigation due to lack of evidence as to who dunnit. Furries very mad that people laugh at their disrupted freakshow rather than giving asspats and coddling them. There were accusations thrown out as far as who might've done it but, as stated earlier, this resulted in nothing.

2nd tweet
Reddit Post
FA Journal

Reactions from normies after the attack:

So who was accused and what happened?
Two people:
Most people claimed it was Ryan Hill.
DogPatchPress claimed it was Magnus Diridian.

On Ryan
The main reason the general populous blamed Ryan for the attack was due to him allegedly taking credit for it. He had a history of being a complete sped as well which included
  • Making fun of dead people (mainly Lemonade Coyote, an EMT who died in a car crash
  • Sending scat porn to people
  • Drawing over art comms & turning people's fursonas into diaperfurs / scat fetishists
  • He allegedly had made a bomb threat to AnthroCon (not sure if this was before or after the chlorine attack)
Archive filled with proof of the majority of these claims.

It wasn't very long after the attack that furries whipped themselves up into such a frenzy playing Internet Detective that people just got fucking annoyed.
1589260304469.png
Archive

Interestingly enough, there is a podcast which Ryan and his fucking mom made an appearance in. This also features Gabriel Sickel because of fucking course it does.
Ryan's appearance starts at the 32:10 mark. TL;DW will be below the vid.

  • Hill tries to blame Scrat for the con threats. No idea who that is.
  • His mom comes on to defend him. Outs him for being a diagnosed re/tard & specifies that despite him technically living on his own, he has assistance from the family.
  • Apparently the FBI was on his ass from earlier threats he made so when the Gas Attack happened, he was one of the 1st people interrogated. The FBI cleared him afterwards.
  • His mom becomes the most based person to talk to the fandom by calling every furry mentally handicapped (including her own son for the 2nd time). One of the interviewers gets really fucking pissed about that.
  • Ryan was sending scat porn to some dude on the show because he wanted to be his friend lol
  • Gabe: " There's a lot more to the fandom than Scat Porn & it makes me uncomfortable :( "
  • They try to send him onto F-List & babyfur.me
  • Someone got mad because the FBI wouldn't arrest Hill even though he said pretty please

On Magnus
The main accuser against Magnus as far as MFF goes comes from DPP. He conducted an interview which actually produced some relatively interesting info. For instance, Magnus carried out a similar attack in 2004 against a bank. Apparently 3 separate people confirmed that he was under FBI investigation. Foxler also claimed to have known who carried out the attack but was blackmailed into silence in 2017. This is most likely a lie for attention but this didn't stop the FBI from actually knocking on his door.

Patch goes on to insinuate that Magnus' potential motive for the attack was because a staffer stopped him & his spotter from running out into traffic, thus " ruining his fun " or some shit. A roommate was interviewed as well but said that despite him being a suspect, they didn't see any chlorine in the room or think that Magnus did it.

Other running theories
To conclude and reiterate on this section, no arrests have ever been made. Ryan & Magnus will appear in later sections as their shittery does not end here.

Outside these 2 suspects there are other theories thrown around. 1 such rumor was crafted than none other than the drug peddling pedo-zoo, Gabriel Sickel (who you've seen a few times now). His take?

Drugs.
Here's his cringey video on it.


He wrote a journal on it if you'd rather read than listen to him prattle.
1595086094005.png

The other theory (really more of a joke) was that someone on 4chan was trying to clean his suit and did this by accident.
nSBq40e.png

MFF 15, AC15, & MFF17
Remember how I said that those 2 idiots would be back?
Yeah, they both fucked up in the same year. Magnus first.
TL;DR Dude wore a Confederate Flag fursuit named Arkansas to the con & furries (being predominantly LGBT) got buttblasted. Magnus has a track record of pissing people off with his suits too as an important aside. He was banned from MFF shortly after the 1st incident " for his own safety ". He was also banned from AC17 due to wearing the suit (which was against the con's rules) to the Fursuit parade + failing to pay registration. Finally, he went back to MFF in a different suit only to be arrested for trespassing (most likely due to the ban still being in place, this needs clarifying).


Before I get into the meat of things, I think this tweet perfectly summarizes the Furry Community as a whole. This was tweeted after his arrest in 2017
1589263332703.png

The 1st incident of him wearing a controversial fursuit actually stems from 2014 where he impersonated Lemon Coyote.

Finally, here he is at MFF17 shortly before being arrested.

BLFC 15
TL;DR Ryan Hill brought a pellet gun to BLFC. Kyle Lambert tried to take credit for " bringing him to justice " because he's an attention seeking faggot. Furries were upset because Ryan wasn't arrested for terroristic threats like they thought, but merely detained for trespassing at the event that (I'm assuming) he was already banned from. Apparently the con had a restraining order against him which prevented him from being present in con space as well as the surrounding city. How anyone can produce a restraining order that prevents him from entering a city without verified proof of him being a domestic terrorist is beyond me but I won't say anything else.
He was released shortly after being detained & allowed to return to his home in CA under the supervision of his mother.

A lot of info is basically just going to be rehashed from the previously linked Pastebin as that document compiled a lot of info from both MFF14 & BLFC15. There are links which weren't archived in time & whatever mongoloid cobbled this thing together wrongly assumed you could just copy / paste links from images hosted on private Discord servers.

The same guy would write an article on it & just right off the bat you know this guy has no credibility. Title is inherently false but that's what you get when you write for DogPatch. Article includes Kyle's timeline of events but as far as I can see, doesn't even offer any proof that he was in contact with staff.

That's pretty much it. Furries are horrifically bad at documenting this shit so I couldn't really find much, even when using Twitter's Advanced Search, Googling, & browsing here around the time of the event. I'll have to try again later I guess.

I loved that video. OP isnt shit though, so good job.
Thanks! I haven't seen a good thread posted to PG in a minute and I was holding onto this one. Would've published sooner but it had some formatting issues (was a mistake I made). More to come, just need to do some more backtracking unless someone can post about the topics listed in the Closing Thoughts section and clear them up for me. The Chlorine Attack is my biggest headache at the moment because there are 2 people who either made threats or took credit for the attack. Even though there was an investigation, there's still no evidence to prove who actually did it. Kinda bummed in that department.

There were plenty of minor con sideshows but I think one that's forgotten about was the death of Califur. A furry named TheBigKK carried out a 24 hour op against babyfurs by calling up CaliFur's hotel (and allegedly threatening them) after Len (the former leader of some old AltFurry discords who has his own thread here) decided to tell his server full of edgy far-right kids to call up the con hotel over hosting babyfurs. What happened next was an autism storm that caused an intersection between the fractured far-right and furries.

TheBigKK/Nate decided to phone up the hotel and impersonate a reporter. This is a classic prank calling technique, and he decided to bring up the babyfur thing by calling it "child molestation". One of the callers who weren't in this recording allegedly threatened them though.



This was my write up on this at the time of the event:
I remember when he was in the Alt-Furry discord server. Dude was acting like a spastic fuck towards left wing raiders who were joining the chat to whine, and was bragging about how much of a pro haxx0r he was with tactics such as emoji bombing servers (flooding the chat with 1000+ emojis to lag the client), and he bragged about raids.

He was also kicked out of the Alt-Furry server for this very reason too. At this time, Len was campaigning to get a babyfur panel cancelled at Califur 2017. Len also told the whole group to call and tweet at the hotel hosting a babyfur panel, and Nathan thought it was hilarious to call up the hotel and act like some thirteen year olds trying to copy prank calling groups, using the well known "pretend you're x" trick by calling them up impersonating a news station, and according to rumors there were other calls made too by him. What happened next was the panel got cancelled due to security concerns, and Deo, Dogpatch, and friends quickly seized this opportunity to potray Alt-Furry as terrorists for shutting down a fucking babyfur panel.

After this happened, suspicion quickly fell on TheBigKK, being confirmed by the audio recordings. He was kicked out of the group just like that for being a PR nightmare, since the last thing the leaders wanted to be seen as was as a raid group.

What was interesting about Nate is that he was doing plenty of other exceptional things too. He was pals with not-fed Richard Spencer, who was declared "leader of the alt-right" by CNN. In August 2017 there was a infamous rally that devolved into political violence resulting in one death, police inaction, and prosecution afterwards that only resulted in one side being punished. It was then followed up by massive internet censorship involving sites that had remained up for years losing their domains/hosting and all, which even scared Dear Leader into making multiple threads worrying about the site's future.

Within the far-right there were schisms from that infamous protest, and one such event afterwards was that Weev (infamous troll turned Nazi) ran a blog post not only exposing his ties with Spencer, but even revealing a time when he also blackmailed a 14 year old. It also talks about how he was a furry for years and required people joining Spencer's Discord to dox themselves. Not long after he was mentioned in an article by another site about how Richard Spencer was datamining the shit out of his supporters. In other words, the guy who fucked over Califur ended up getting into some insane gay op Nazi drama.

But what about the furry con side of things? Well the big long term impact from this is that Califur was sent into a downward spiral it's still unable to recover from. They found themselves in a RMFC style situation but this time actually instigated by the other side. Califur was already financially fragile and this ended up pushing it in the red hard from security costs.

The WikiFur page talks a bit more about it, they had to pay $25,000 in security costs from these calls and 2018 got canceled. While the WikiFur page solely lays the blame on this incident, Twitter furries had been talking about how Califur was badly run beforehand as well and was losing money. How much money? Well, for starters the people who ran Califur started a literal fucking gofundme (related fandom drama thread post) to raise money when the con went belly up in something that one can draw parallels to nowadays with the Coronavirus con shutdowns. To add to that, Califur had a mixed reputation among local furries which added another layer to the story.

The most fitting thing about Califur and what happened is probably the next to last tweet on their account, where they were at a comic con trying to promote a dead con. In 2019 there was a booth as well.

Allegedly Califur is no longer a thing and congoers will never get refunds, and clouding this is the fact that one of the main con people died and had funeral bills and all as well according to the replies.

There's probably more shit I could dig up about Califur, but that's the gist of it. A crazy exceptional Nazi reject furry ended up killing off a con that was badly run.

As always, your contributions are fucking phenomenal. I don't suppose you were around back during the Chlorine Attack were you? I know it's not the 1st time MFF was threatened either. Also just remembered the whole thing with Milo Yiannopolous trying to show up to MFF.

Fucking hell, how has MFF not gone out either?

Love the OP, can't wait for further writeups.

It's only sad that with the Kung-Flu going around the con drama this year is going to be fairly slim pickings. On the bright side, this thread will be good and ready for next year's sideshows.

The only things I remember fondly from the chlorine attack is it became an infamous event furries talk about having been to if they were there, and the infamous MSNBC report where reports laughed at furries.

Also regarding Califur, one more thing I might as well add is after that incident was the GoFundMe stunt they pulled and I'll post about it in that post as well with an edit.

Yeah I have this vid downloaded. It's going to be the opening part for that section when I get to it. Doing the #Plushgate section first since that's been better documented

Your attention to detail is top notch. Bonus points for archiving your shit. This is a great way to ensure anyone who stumbles onto this thread three years from now isn't looking at a bunch of broken links.

One small criticism I have of this thread is the most recent content is from 2019. I put an emphasis on small because if for nothing else, this thread makes for a great historical archive. If (or rather, when) future furry cons turn into gigantic train wrecks, this thread should be the place for that shit to be archived.

Yeah because all the cons are cancelled. There's only been one convention in the US in 2020 and nothing of note happened. The only con drama has been how each of them handled cancellations / refunds. Still working on part 2 which is going over other events. Probably will need a part 3 at this point because things are running a lot longer than I expected.
