After reading about the way some participants of the recent BlogHer conference in NYC behaved toward a fellow participant, and volunteer, I am sickened and terrified of actually going to this conference myself! See post by Carmen, a.k.a. Mom to the Screaming Masses, - "We Are All Special Snowflakes".
I have an idea of what we could do to those that feel so entitled while at the BlogHer conference that they scream and threaten fellow members of our blog world to get something that just isn't available to them, no matter how great they think their numbers are. Why not have these bloggers called out , name them, so that we could address them, if we chose, and hear them explain their behavior. If they feel so comfortable saying these things to a fellow participants face, and sharing their feelings - which seem to include outrage of entitlement - then why shouldn't we share in a more "social" way. That is what we do here right, "social media"?
Time for some Social Media Therapy.
Carmen sounds positive that she will attend BlogHer again and is working on ways to make things better next year. What a woman! Have you encountered rude behavior at a conference? What to you think we should to do those that are getting out of hand?
