Re: Salon takes a hatchet to Burning Man?

Burning Man is a big thing with 80,000+ participants yearly, easily more than a million alumni, year around operations, paid staff and volunteer staff. So it is easy to put together any narrative, positive or negative, with that many people and experiences. Salon decided to be edgy with their articl...

Re: "Burning Man's Culture is in Danger"

I think the answer for saving Burning Man culture in general is to have service camps, theme camps, music camps do their utmost best to share the Burning Man ethos through their relationships with their volunteers, campers and guests. Thanks! And agree. One of our major debates on ePlaya is virgin ...

You can discuss with mods anything any time. That includes drug posts and drug camp posts that are mod deleted.

A substantive post of mine questioning a placed camp promoting illegal in NV and on federal land psychedelics was deleted, oddly.

The Gate doesn't contribute to the Census data. There is 'The Census' online after the event. And since not everyone is the type to do that, there is the random sampling of incoming participants during the event. This is used to 'weight' the data. All very controlled and orchestrated.

I agree with the Captain, that an emergency evacuation of BRC would be a CF. I think BMORG should pay to have NV34 paved to 3 lanes from the 447Y to whatever our entrance is. In an emergency, 2-3 lanes could flow to staging areas on 447N and 447S of the Y. I’m fine with a smaller event too, if it co...
