Rule Six

In 1991, the con hotel required attendees to sign a contract of rules in reaction to what the hotel felt to be inappropriate behavior by guest the previous year. The list of rules and expectations was lengthy; many con attendees expressed their extreme dislike for the sixth item on the list, which became known as "Rule Six."
