Not that I think it would be a good idea.
Just curious.

Sure! Foron convention holds that the first response in any thread must be A) sarcastic, and B) typographically nitpicky.

With that in mind, I think "Foron" is supposed to be capitaliz--oh, you probably didn't mean this definition of "convention."

Not a convention, but here's a picture from the picnic of a couple summers ago:

If you haven't been to one, maybe there's a reason.

Seriously, I know plenty of Forons and will probably run into a few this week. And there have been happy hours and other get togethers. But official offline confabs have turned sour on other boards.

Wherever one of us is getting blissfully drunk while feeling self-important, a foron convention is being called to order. We steal all of our great ideas from the Book of Matthew Ch. 18.
