This is just to say:

To everybody who has opined recently that sexual harassment policies at conventions mean an end to flirtation, dating, and romance at cons--

I'm involved in a relationship with somebody I met, befriended, and grew to love largely at conventions. He never once felt the need to grope me, make an inappropriate comment on my body or dress, or ask if anything I was wearing was meant as a coded sexual message before the moment when we figured out that we were each interested in one another in a romantic sense.

Neither flirting nor building emotional connection is harassment, folks--and harassment is not flirting.

It's not actually all that complicated.

I am so happy about high-fives. My nieces are being taught high-fives as a way that they can have positive contact with people without having to be squozen or smooched by someone they only see once or twice a year. Hurray for high-fives!
I would like to express my admiration for the example of the past tense of "squoze".

And the high-fives.
