The way you were treated was unfair and wrong. You shouldn’t have to explain why you did what you did, demanding that the organizers ensure that their customers enjoy a gaming experience free from harassment. However, you explained it clearly and rationally here. I admire the way you handled your harassment at the event, and the clear account you’ve provided. It’s unfortunate that so many commenters refuse to empathize. I hope you don’t spend too much mental and emotional energy dealing with them. Save that energy for the next game of Magic, and here’s hoping your table mates understand how to treat their fellow humans with dignity and respect!
