Re: How I Got Kicked Out of Burning Man

Wow! That is some story. I am sorry that this happened to you, but from early on I have steered clear of rangers. I treat them like they are cops. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Read the Stanford study on guards and prisoners. Put on a uniform and you have magic powers. Just say...

I agree.

I've come to terms with the idea of not going(for the first time in 7 yrs), and you know what? I'm ok with it.

Same for me.... 7 years running. Stop running... start walking.

Donna, you are being kindof a jerk in more than one thread here... But you and zaphod do make a good point. I've seen a *lot* of people posting that they simply won't be bringing their camps out this year. That sucks. I think a lot of people just feel kindof betrayed by the org right now. yeah........

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

No one in my theme camp got a ticket. This seems against all rules of probability. 0 for 20. Either the pool of extra/fake tickets is ENORMOUS or something is up here. Like a preference for people in SF or something? How could tickets be available into the summer last year and this year 40,000 tick...

Wanna totaly mess over scalpers – here is an idea - If you really want to have some fun with the scalper market, create a ticket system that does not have any independent means of verification. No hologram. No fancy printing. Just a very simple and very easy to forge ticket with a unique ID number....

My hope is that this fine lottery will clean out the people who despair and give up too easily, the people who blame burgins for their ticket woes, the self-entitled folk, the people who can't or won't adapt. Maybe it'll even have lasting effects, sparing us their presence in the...

I am really starting to wonder - maybe the scalpers and hoarders really are just boogeymen for the most part. There are something like 313,000 people liking Burning Man on Facebook, and don't count me in that - I am not on Facebook. The economy has picked up (slightly) this year. Americans are work...

Re: The End of Burning Man as we Know it.

Burning Man is continuously evolving and reinventing itself. To be honest, I think this shake-up is a good thing. New alliances will be made. Big camps (some of them) have gotten cliquey, downright rude and unwelcoming even, and maybe having smaller camps will encourage more participation and inter...

I'm telling you. The BMorg is maneuvering to sell BM to some undisclosed Non-profit. They want to maximize their profits.

We've been told WE make BM. Well, that's obviously a LIE.

I most likely will not be making anything BM this year.

And it wasn't my fault. I was gambled out.
