Uh, Melvin, that wasn't just "inappropriate touching", that was battery.

Good information for first timers. Kinda like what my mother told  us as kids before going in the store "Don't touch anything or anyone without permission"

It's a sad state of affairs that these lessons need to be made into a video as there are people out there who cannot act with decency. Although, I think with the photography sniping one, that is just down to excitement and wanting to get a good photo. But there's still etiquette and protocol, which most professional photographers understand and adhere to.

Exactly, some need to realize not everyone is a creep or a*hole.  Some are just very excited and especially in our modern culture you see something cool you immediately snap a pic of it.  Touching props?  That's just rude.  You don't touch someone else's stuff without permission.  Had an incident with someone I knew grabbing my lightsaber (Bellicose) on my hip trying to take it to look at it.  Since it was on the covertec clip I had to move with it or risk my belt being broken (prototype belt, not sturdy yet).  When I told him off he said 'Jeez its just a toy".  My response?  Yea..but its an expensive toy and its MY toy.  seriously, no home training

Agreed.  I was cosplaying as Captain America a few years ago and some dude slapped a woman on her behind since she played a sexy Spider Gwen and when she hit him, he called her a word that rhymes with itch and starts with a "b" and threw his arm back as if he was going to slap her. So I walked up to him, grabbed his arm and turned him around when he started with "What the **** do you want, you st...." when I knocked him out. I got applaud with that but I raised my voice and said "Anyone who wants to sexually assault someone, you send them to me"

I'm not asking for any applaud or anything, when we're talking about things like this, no one should touch another without consent in a sexual or anyway

I don't take harassment towards anyone lightly, let alone sexual assault.

Hey I cleaned it up. I have a severe aversion to metal in my skin. You should see me freaking out over a vaccine needle.
