It it seriously too great a request for people attending a convention of any sort to:

a. Have a shower no more than 3 hours prior to attending
b. Wear clothes which have been recently washed — and not worn since the washing
c. Invest in some deodorant

I mean, it’s just a basic, human courtesy.

Nerds are often associated with images of greasy, pimple-strewn, perspirant-scented, tracksuit wearing individuals who rarely venture from the troglodyic security of their mother’s basement. I am a proud nerd and geek, and I try to combat terrible stereotypes such as these.

Some people make that very difficult.
