This man is a typical IRT member, I shit you not

IRT, or "Incident Response Team" is an IRL trolling organization and branch of the Internet Military that trolls animu conventions. Only, instead of doing it for the lulz, they do it for great justice. IRT's only job is to control the lunatics who permeate animu cons. However, being batshit crazy themselves, failure is the only option.

The Idiot Retardation Train was founded in 2005 in order to control Anime Central which was over 9000 attendees for the first time that year and has recently moved into the territory of Lulzcon. The Internet Reinforcement Troop were initially tasked with combating the growing threat of people holding up signs at Anime Central. 13 year old girls used to hold up sheets of paper asking for sex until it was b&, because virgins wanted to get laid is a horrible thing, worse than raping babies.

Epic Failage at Lulzcon

Leader of lulzcon IRT fail

Some gaiafag from IRT who doesn't know ED and thought it was a 4chan con, somehow tricked Girlvinyl into letting them provide security assistance at lulzcon. This started out as a major problem for the convention, but soon lead to epic lulz when the entire team was perma-b& from lulzcon and all lulz related activities. And nothing of value was lost.

The story begins when some gaiafag, apparently wasted the time of someone who ran the con and BEGGED for the position of head security troll. After saying "OMGPLZ!!OMGPLZ!! INEEDPOWERTOFUELMYUNWARRANTEDSELFIMPORTANCEBECAUSEIAMANATTENTIONWHORE!!!", someone said "Sure...., it can't hurt, right?"

IRT then went about taking charge of the con. They were allowed to bring about 3 or 4 other IRT people to help with shit like guarding the cashbox, making sure no furries or gaiafags got in, and stuff like that. But, since IRT is a group of professionals, who all have experience in running conventions and black belts in martial arts and stuff, it looked like they convinced Girlvinyl to allow them to bring ten ops, they ended up bringing 14 asshats including several furries, weeaboo and other people who just DIDN'T belong. The whole time Mandy, 'the fail in charge' thought that, even though less than sixty people actually came, there where going to be hundreds of people and that they would riot and fuck up the hotel, meaning that only the power of furfags and weeaboo could hold anonymous in check. She also thought it was a 4chan convention.

The Ban

Mandy was so scared of Girlvinyl, she had another girl in cat ears, tail, stripey socks, and matching corset approach Girlvinyl on Saturday night. This girl indicated that IRT would not be wearing their superduper protective security vests, after having removed them in disgust (or possibly misunderstanding) of lulz (or possibly reality). It was suggested instead that IRT not show in the morning, Sunday, for the last day of Lulzcon.

By showing up early Sunday morning, the remainder of the IRT team was slightly allowed to stay until they started misbehaving inappropriately. Indicating, "Brb", Girlvinyl was thought to attend a short meeting in the powder room, but we instead found out that she dropped the cosplay kids off by the pool.
