Remember, this thread isn’t about people with generators, it’s about assholes with generators.
Not same thing.

Yes, I agree, not that my agreement was solicited or nesscessary but hopefully appreciated.

Yes, if someone politely complains about behavior or activity, such as an annoying sound, In the spirit of festivities burners should certainly reciprocate in good faith by trying to cease offending behavior or activity to avoid unpleasant confrontation or LEO contact.

Sonny, for someone who has yet to make their first trek out to the Playa, you sure a shit got a lot to say about how things need to be.

Hit the brakes a bit, take the ride, then come back and we can talk.

You got a lot of expectations going in and this ride will hit you like a Mack Truck.

Right now you’re talking out of your ass all over the board.

Generators, even loud ones, are allowed at Burning Man.
Refusing to appease the neighbors noise complaints will not result in
LEO contact or intervention.

BRC is a loud place. There will be music you don’t always like, at very loud volume. There will be noise.
There will be loud parties.
All these things will happen at all hours of the day and night. If you can’t roll with this, don’t go.

Still, if you’re not an asshole you’ll avoid bringing a lawnmower-engine generator or at least noise-baffle it.
But yeah, if you’ve never even been there, you don’t know how things are.

Well, thank you brother for your edifying and welcoming words of brotherly love, inclusion and acceptance. No need to get your "Depends" in a wad Oldtimer!

Why do you find it necessary or compelled to publicly humiliate me? Does it bolster your weak self-image?

Now one of my concerns is having a toxic, narcissistic neighbor with anger management issues. GESH!

In the short time I have joined this forum, I have witnessed Burners advocate murder, vandalism against other Burners for essentially amount to petty grievances and now have been cyber-bullied and victimized by a Burner.

Peace to all.

































Why do you feel compelled to attack and belittle me? Such a downer and buzz kill Sour feng shui and just downright manners. Now I am beginning to rethink my participation because of fear is of having a narcissistic neighbor such as yourself.

Like some including me have said.

You haven’t been.
You have preconceived notions on what you think it is, and you’re way off from reality.

Go learn about the 30+ year history that led to Burning Man. It has roots in the late 70s - early 80s counter culture in San Francisco.

It’s not a big green lovefest you seem to think it is. Quite the opposite. Very tribal and ripe with anarchism.

Funny how you went reading old posts from a decade ago and only fixated on negative incidents. Says allot about your motivations. Think about that.

Don’t be discouraged, stay a while, talk to people instead of preaching. You may find a niche that fits your palette.

And yes, you got a spanking. Us old fucks and our Depends value the lost art of spankings. That’s the main thing all the millennial are missing. A good whooping instead of the 12th place ribbon.

And please don’t mock anal seepage in the elderly. It happens and hopefully you live a long and happy life that will lead to that lovely experience. Time gets us all eventually. ;)

I have for years. Consideration and respect for the peace and tranquility of other others is fundamental citizenship. You will be perfectly cool with me pounding on my drums all day and night?

How unfortunate. I have no interest in rowdiness or violence.

So, anarchism advocates trampling on the natural rights of others?

I will backpack in and volunteer for the post-event clean-up so I can basked quietly in the peace and solitude of the Playa.

Unfortunately, some people, particularly assholes, live too long.

Lol... people DO pound drums all night.
Peace and tranquility have very little to do with Burning Man.

I plan to stay but this forum isn't very active. I registered with Spark but now I can't log on.
