Thank for saying (what should be) the obvious. It's not hard, really. Yet I spend far too much time at larger cons looking for the telltale signs (extended thumb, rubbing the nose bridge, etc) asking for my help to persuade some pushy guy it's time to take a walk.
I really want convention guides to print in large bold letters: WE GET THAT YOU DON'T GROK SOCIAL. HERE'S A LIST OF SYNONYMS FOR "No." ...
Worse yet, though, I have to sadly report that I have already heard last summer's drama turned into one of the lamest come-on lines ever: "I can't tell you how hot you look without getting kicked out of this con." *headdesk*
