You communicate to the operator by interacting with the robot. I call bullshit. In the world of "no expectations," how can a ranger, or anyone besides the creators, be expected to know that? I would have done the same thing had I been in the same situation. And I'd do it again on Saturday. And I ag...

SQT: Don't you have to check that little box or whatever and accpet the terms of service (one of which is non-commericaliasm) before you post?

I'm not sure ignorance is an approariate excuse in that case.

Still won't patronize them.

Well, now I can add another store to my "do not patronize" list.

I'm in the market for one more mannequin, and you can rest assured I won't be buying it there, nor directing anyone else to.

"Gift" does not equal "swag." Let's not define one with the other. I have many gifts from Burning Man that I do not keep in a shoebox or hanging on my desk, but rather hold them in my head, and in my heart. I might agree with the encouragement to downsize schwag. I do not agree with downsizing gifts.
