It seems that Wah is at the con, in the dealer's den, and other Raiders are around too, despite the multiple assurances from Boiler that Wah isn't registered, isn't flying to Denver, etc. Really seems like Boiler is just lying at every opportunity, maybe as damage control? Trying to convince people that Raiders aren't there and neither is the one who we know has covid? But unless these Telegram messages are disinfo, Boiler is just being contradicted at every turn.

Also LOL at the guy who came to the con while sick complaining about a lack of enforced distancing.

Most city dwellers/sports fans should already be wise to these parking rate hikes. They rob out-of-towners every week for first-game-of-the-season on football & baseball, and other special overlap event weeks in every major city across the country.

A big chunk of furries are gay men, and a chunk of those are bug chasers or just overall negligent with all forms of protection. This should surprise no one, especially since they're lonely and wanting to be up close and personal with strangers.

Surprised no one is talking about the sperg out about BLFC allowing religious exemptions they posted a few days ago.

Basically not only does this make it SUPER easy to fake CDC cards and vaccination status, but they are allowing religious exemptions per their "vaccine exemption form".
Needless to say the replies are not happy!

I love those replies pointing out "you could legally exclude religious people in this case, you know," completely oblivious to the possibility that maybe the people running BLFC don't want to exclude people based on their beliefs. Some of the outrage is just an expression of general anti-religious sentiment.


In other news, DenFur took $5k of the money from the inflated attendance price and handed it to the trans LARP ranch, almost a 50% bonus on top of what was otherwise raised through donations, charity auction, etc. I still don't understand how this counts as a charity.

Next year's guests of honor have been chosen.

Chise/@sailorrooscout, who from a brief glance appears to do literally nothing but tweet about vaccines, using the most pro-vaccine framing of statistics possible.

Meezer/@redcoatcat, who appears to be... a furry artist. Imagine that, choosing someone based on contributions to the anthropomorphic art realm. That's not nearly woke enough.

Replies so far are a bunch of cheering for the vaccine person and no acknowledgment of the artist.

(No archives because I'm on mobile and it's hard enough just making a post at all. Didn't dig into either of them really. )

Sailorrooscout was mentioned earlier in this thread for being one of the people in charge of that Harvest Moon Howl Fest, an event that was advertised as being BIPOC-friendly but seems to be run entirely by people who have no clue what the fuck they're doing.

She's been heavily criticized for generally being loud, obnoxious, making everything about her, and infamously sending her fanbase to harass and dox a teenager who lightly criticized the event.

I really have no idea why Denfur would possibly think they'd be a good person to feature at their convention, but considering they chose to support the "Trans Ranch" over something that could actually use the money (eg pretty much any other charity or nonprofit) there's clearly some nepotism going on behind the scenes there.

EDIT: here's an archive of the denfur tweet

Nepotism, 100%. You know how incredibly clique-ish and incestuous furries are, and doubly so when it comes to conventions. She's either someone's friend, or a friend of a friend who owed her a favor or wanted to get a favor from her later.

Good lord you weren’t kidding, I got board after scrolling back to the beginning of June and literally every single tweet is about vaccines.

You’d think there’d be a “hey did you see the Red Sox game?” Or some furry porn or something in there, but nope, just word vomit about vaccines.

That's because she purportedly works for Moderna and has worked on their vaccine in some nebulous capacity. In the course of the last year and a half, she's gone from having a Twitter audience of a couple thousand furries to 90k people, all because of her vaccine tweets. She posts relentlessly positive news about the vaccines which people have latched onto in the face of constant bad news about covid.

What's interesting is that she's attracted a large following of people who might as well be covid-deniers who have screamed against lockdowns and preventative measures like masks and social distancing because her tweets always talk about how perfect the vaccines are. So she's pretty much fueling the fire of people who think the pandemic is over just because some people got vaccines. Curiously, she never refutes these people since she clearly doesn't want to drive away all of the attention she now gets, along with the cash flow that comes from it since OF COURSE she has a Ko-fi account.

Chise has also tweeted about issues with some of the vaccines, including the J&J blood clot issue. Her "rise to fame," so to speak, came from the fact that before the vaccines went public last December, she was posting information about how they worked. While there was a lot of technical knowledge involved, there was also breakdowns that laypeople could understand.

Chise has her own drama around her, but being a Moderna employee who only posts positive things about the vaccines is not one of them.

I'd take vaccine optimism over 5G Bill Gates shit any day.

We really need a study with PCR spot checking of vaccinated people to see how many of them have a detectable viral load with no symptoms though. I have a strong suspicion that vaccinated people are still capable of transmission considering what's going on here in Florida.

I don't know the details, but from casual chats with those I know who work in the pharmaceutical industry, and some hyper simplification:

Right now there are three major strains to be concerned about. Alpha, Delta, and Epsilon. The vaccine is highly effective against Alpha and is what it was based on, the human body seems unable to make antibodies to protect against Epsilon if you've previously caught covid, leading to reinfection (this isn't super rare, but normally only happens in more benign or quickly passing viruses), but most vaccines seems to produce antibodies with a high level of resistance to epsilon, though this resistance is much worse if you vaccine mixed. Delta is the "scary one" it is more dangerous to your health, and it has mutated just enough that the vaccine has a very low effectiveness against it.

Many of the reports they chat about when we're talking about our own work woes is that Florida is filled with Delta strain, though a third dose of the vaccine designed to compete against delta is apparently coming along well, which is hopeful sounding news. There are also discussions to slip the covid vaccine into the yearly flu shot for a few years, and then shuffle it into our larger rotation of yearly viruses as herd immunity hits the critical point.

However the best way to think about covid is there isn't "covid" anymore, just like the isn't "the flu" there is "a variety of covid strains currently making the rounds", and we have minimal immunity to work from, unlike the flu which we all have at least a weak partial immunity to, and still need to achieve a degree of global herd immunity to defend against the worse of it. It has mutated into a good number of strains now, though we'll soon (talking big scope here, might still take a year or two) have just enough immunity to reduce it to the level of concern that we have as a society as the flu, and then we can tell nature to get fucked and toss it into the yearly flu vaccine, which is more like a cocktail of dozens of vaccines based on our best guess of what is going to fuck shit up.

Funnily enough, I just finished watching Internet Historian's Rainfurrest video. You would think that people would remember to act somewhat normally in a convention (which are more lenient than a lot of venues). I guess people at denfur forgot about it - grifting for the tranch aside.

I have seen chise around before, I will give you a quick summary. He is a mullato mixed race person who is now a leading senior scientist for the lab he works at (pretty sure its at a uni) working on making the COVID vaccine and also some research stuff on HIV now (good fucking luck with that lol). Chise has been known to be the leader of howlfest, a black people only fur con which was covered ages ago within this thread. Not too sure if he is still the chairman of the con but it appears to be its under the rug especially when nasfk and now pibbleking have now been kicked off the staff team. Chise when he was younger associated with some ex-canadian military dude who is now 31 I think? best known for fucking a 15 year old boy and planning to blow up midwest furfest with a IED (he told this plan to chise btw) and did a bunch of shit to the people around him. Suffice to say, chise is a massive cunt who will use his virologist status for clout and to fuel his ego. He also constantly posts literal fucking science jargon which most normal people do not understand and is the fucking pinnacle of the word "scientism" which is a worship of science by the masses, described by Terry Davis (PBUH).

I bet its because his colleagues follow his account and its all his identity is. As a result he just posts about it fucking constantly because he has nothing else in his head besides the science jargon he is always thinking about. Would not be surprised if furries just stopped following him entirely once his preaching of the vaccine begins to become too annoying.

Any updates on the BIPOC only con? I have not seen shit from them in ages and chise has now removed their @ from her twitter bio. seems a bit odd but looks to be everything is probably gonna be frozen until the beginning of next year


Edit: realised its a woman, dont care anyway I always assume everyone online is a man until proven otherwise
