Re: Thoughts?

I can't do anything, that's the problem. If Person A gets beat up in a bar fight, person B can't go press assault charges on person A's behalf. She said she afraid of the backlash that will come from outing this guy because he's so popular. He fucking publicly shamed her because she said she wouldn'...

Re: Thoughts?

Ok, So Simon thinks its stupid to call out douschebags in our midst, I guess. Are we supposed to be radically inclusive of their creeper behavior and good-old-boy BS?

Smenkare might be talking about creeps who don't cross that threshhold. Of course, that may not qualify as a creep in your view. I'm not going to say that creep is in the eye of the beholder, but nonetheless, there is probably a range of where we draw our lines. What I mean is, there are a lot of p...

2011 was my first burn, but it wasn't my first festival. There are some things that I see at burning man that make me cringe sometimes, but everyone burns their own way.

Scalpers can scalp tickets all they like. We're they're market. If we're not buying, there's no market.
