What is a 'glomp'?

I've heard that at conventions, some people don't like to be 'glomped', and on MSN I've seen people 'glomping' each other, but what does it mean? If its rude or anything, just tell me XD this reminds me of the time when I was 5 and I asked my Dad what a condom was XD

Pretty much a glomp is a running leaping hug. It can either be seen as a caring embrace or sometimes it can be a leaping tackle.

Oh, so you just run and leap onto someone, basically knocking them over?

That's quite odd....XD

I guess it's kind of similar to the situations where you haven't seen somone in years so you run to each other and share a glorious hug thats borderline a tackle.

From personal experience I find fangirls enjoy doing this to boy characters. But some cons now have rules against glomping and you must ask permission before doing so.

Yeah, I probably won't be glomping anyone XD Last time, my brother was glomped around 50 times in one day (he's 21 and he went as Axel...BIG mistake XD)

Oh, so THAT'S what it was that broke my wooden katana... People "GLOMPING" me!

Lorlz, j/k j/k. My sword wasn't broken. But, I am DEFINITELY no stranger to being "GLOMPED" If anyone sees me at Animarithon, or Otakon, feel free to GLOMP to your hearts content.

Did you know that at Otakon, they won't let anyone hold up signs, or T-shirts or anything, that advertise free hugs? It's considered solicitation, or panhandling.
I wonder what their policy is on running around yelling:
FREE NAKED GLOMPING HERE!!!

Tackle-hugging.

Just be careful, I had a fanboy that glomped me and held on like a limpet, and we both nearly fell over. It was on a brick patio, too!

Yeah...glomping can be a fun experience or a very scary one. I don't really mind if people just come and glomp me, but I have only been to one con and been glomped once, so I never really had the glompage when something was broken or the person stayed attached to me. My friend and I we're walking and I just here someone scream out "EDWARD!" (even though I was his younger brother Al from FMA the movie) and I turn around and I see this girl running at me and she practically jumps on me. It was pretty funny though.

They have those rules at ACen too. I think its becoming standard for conventions to outlaw signs and solicitation of any kind.

I hope someone likes my costumes enough to earn me a few glomps this year. ^^
