At a skeptical meetup (be it a pub, a lecture, a conference, or anything really), have you ever encountered fellow skeptics among the attendees who were dicks to you? Not that you disagreed over anything skeptical or ideological or anything in particular, but that these persons were just dickish against you for no particular reason? If so, what did you do about it?

Yes. And what I did about it is nothing. I just figure that the person is a dick. It only happened once out of many meetups and cons.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Rarely. If I would have gone to Mythicist Milwaukee 2017, I would likely have met many assholes.
