Manspreading banned at MERGE! 2017 conference in Orlando, FL

If you’re in the habit of manspreading, the act of sitting with your legs spread far apart while in public places, take notice.

Domainers attending MERGE! 2017 in Orlando, Florida, will be issued a citation and a possible ban for life from the conference, if they fail to adhere to guidelines against manspreading.

“Spreading one’s legs far out sideways during our sessions is an act of disrespect to domain peers,” said Jothan Frakes, co-founder of MERGE!

“Our multi-discipline conference will have plenty of space for everyone, but manspreading is socially an act of disrespect towards men and women alike, and won’t be tolerated,” added Frakes.

By ensuring that male domainers keep their legs together, MERGE! officials will be accommodating about 20% more people during the educational sessions, seminars and networking sessions.

“Look, I get it, if you’re a macho Latino you were probably raised this way, but come on amigo, show some respect to everyone around you!” exclaimed Jothan Frakes.

Manspreading will only be permitted in the lounge area of the pool, at the cabanas or inside the luxurious private bathrooms of the hotel.

Jothan Frakes and his team will be giving away informational brochures against manspreading like the one below, and will be issuing citations to repeat offenders.

    Hillarious! If this were an actually enforced rule, I would probably be banned from Merge instantly. My legs (As a guy) tend to gravitate outwards when sitting down subconsciously, without being aware. Can you imagine having to focus all your thoughts on remembering not to unconsciously engage in a bad habit? It would distract from the learning at the event. lol

    Eric – No worries, free spring-back bungee cords will be provided to all male attendees that confess to this habitual manspreading. It’s a great free gift in the MERGE! bag of goodies.
