Getting sick sucks, and it's already hard enough to deal with the depression and PPTSD (Post-PAX Traumatic Stress Disorder) WITHOUT getting the flu.
I'm sure the chance of getting Con-SARS (cold/flu in general) is pretty high, but it increases substantially when things like consoles and controllers are shared between tens of thousands of people.
So please, people! Wash your hands often, clean off controllers before/after you use them, use hand sanitizer (shut up, ash!)! And if you're sick, be responsible and don't cough on shit that people will be touching, and try to minimize your germ-spread.
And don't forget about the swine flu!!! aaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
Just be aware that you can spread germs even if you don't think you're sick or contagious!
Please be careful, drink lots of water and eat vitamins, and don't get the PAXSARS!!!!! because it really sucks.
