Police called as Star Wars and Doctor Who fans clash at sci-fi con

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...n-8618529.html

"The row follows a long-running dispute between the two groups and the hosts had reportedly warned the rival Norwich Sci-Fi Club to stay away from the event after a number of comments were posted on Facebook. "

Can't we all just get along?

PFFFFFFT AHAHAHA.

"The two rival groups were spoken to and advised to keep out of each other's way."

This sounds like my job.

Except I would of been more pissed because now I have to write this incident in my report, THANKS YA JERK NERDS.

I also imagine a bunch of people with glow sticks waving them at people pointing fancy pens at them.

HAH NERD!

Also the comments are GOLD:

"Everyone in fandom knows... Dr Who is for homosexuals, Star Wars is for fatties.

But fat homosexuals? They're Bronies."

Glad to see stupidity amongst nerds isn't limited to the States.

Where's the story here? An argument broke out at a convention, someone called the police and nothing got physical.

If anything, I'm surprised it wasn't treated as a crank call.

News outlets routinely seek something to write --- this isn't very noteworthy. Maybe the "nobody got physical" thing.

Which speaks better than most of loud bar nights around where I live.

My brother's a student there and he's a fan of both. When I questioned him whether he was there or not, he said "I wish."

Fans are usually quite cool in my experience. Yes.
