The entire mess resulted in the Hilton that played host to the con to [[GetOut demand that all atendees leave by a certain time on Monday, and told con staff they were no longer welcome,]] leaving the fate of [=RainFurrest=] up in the air.

* "[[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNWhU-PeUdISdvx9S7gtqnQ Buddha B]]" is a person who is either an insane asylum escapee, a person with a god complex, or someone who created a channel to trick people into thinking he is insane like SMK. He makes "reviews" on games and other Youtube channels that he doesn't like, creating down right strange theories such as Xenoblade being a rip off or something and doesn't give any justification for it. He goes on rants about more popular youtube channels because he hates them. His frequent use of coarse language and racist behavior only tops it off. He thinks he is Buddha but was Issac Newton in the past. If that doesn't sum it up, I don't know what will.

* If you're from Toronto, you've no doubt learned to avoid the blatant tourist trap known as [[http://www.thestar.com/business/article/1218229--captain-john-s-restaurant-could-be-toronto-waterfront-fixture-for-years-to-come Captain John's]]. A sub par seafood eatery located on a rusting cruise ship, the restaurant, in addition to food described as mediocre at best and a content=137363&archive=22,45,2003 dated, stale atmosphere, has been criticized for being an eyesore upon the city's harbourfront. The restaurant closed in 2012 after the owner was unable to pay $500,000 in back taxes, which forced the health department to shut the place down since they were unable to [[{{Squick}} sanitize the dishes and wash their hands]]. Sad, considering that the place was considered quite good when it first opened, but quickly degenerated due to financial problems (the owner never being fully compensated by the city from losing a ship in a ferry collision) and [[TheArtifact not being able]] to catch up with the city's growing culinary diversity. The ship was finally towed away at the end of May 2015.

* The Emery Cat is a cat toy that is basically a rest with an emery board on it and filled with catnip, advertised to prevent owners from having to clip their cats' nails all the time. A great idea... that's very poorly executed. The board is VERY flimsy and is easily breakable, the emery board isn't scratchable enough, and the whole thing can just flip over very easily.

A great idea... that's very poorly executed. The board is VERY flimsy and is easily breakable, the emery board isn't scratchable enough, a strong kitten can break off the "playful toy" mounted on the side and carry it triumphantly away, and the whole thing can just flip over very easily.

* [=DashCon=] was a convention organized in 2014 by and for community members and artists on Website/{{Tumblr}}. The convention was first conceived the previous year after successfully raising $4,000 in donations. Approximately 1,000 attendees were present on the first day, only to see the convention descend into farce. Right off the bat, several high-profile guests cancelled their appearances due to not receiving their fees. This limited the highlights of the convention to include a 'ball pit' - a blue kiddy pool filled with colorful balls [[MemeticMutation (pay for an extra hour in the ball pit)]] - and a bounce house in a large, mostly empty room. [[FromBadToWorse Even more outrageous]] is the emergency donation the convention had to hold in order to avoid being thrown out of their hosting hotel ''on the very first night''. They successfully raised the $17,000 needed to keep it going, but it also led to speculation that the entire convention was a quick money-making scam (an assumption not helped by the hefty $65 weekend pass cost). Later, the organizers offered refunds, but it's unclear how many (if any) people actually got a refund. The failures of [=DashCon=] have been chronicled on various websites, including [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/dashcon KnowYourMeme]] and [[http://www.dailydot.com/geek/dash-con-controversy-tumblr/ Daily Dot]]. To top the disaster off, there were rumors that somebody ''urinated'' in the aforementioned ball pit or people ''contracted [[{{Squick}} crabs]]'' ('''genital lice''') from being in the ball pit.

See, many of the people who helped raise money gave it in cash at the convention, and got no written proof of donating. At one point the arrangers said they'd just trust people to be honest and refund everyone who claimed to have donated, but as to whether they did it, that's a different story. Or to sum the refund question up: Now, over a year later, it's still impossible to find somebody who actually got a refund. ** The failures of [=DashCon=] have been chronicled on various websites, including [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/dashcon KnowYourMeme]] and [[http://www.dailydot.com/geek/dash-con-controversy-tumblr/ Daily Dot]].
