"One of the major things you'll discover that makes the ePlaya different from a lot of other online forums is that this is not an anonymous group yelling on the internet; people on here get to know each other pretty well, either on the actual playa itself (there is an "ePlaya Meet 'n Greet" at Burning Man every year on Wednesday night) or at outside events. We're not just names, we're actual people; regular posters tend to know how each other are going to respond on subjects because, just like offline, those tend to be real opinions, not just something tossed out to start trouble.

Because of that, there's going to be inside jokes and a feeling of familiarity in the way people interact (and even regulars who don't talk to each other); The more you hang around and read the board, the more you'll get a feel for it. Regardless of our differences we do have something very amazing in common; everyone is on the ePlaya because of our love of Burning Man, and to learn & share ideas and knowledge about it.

The downside of that familiarity for new members is that the regulars have heard most questions before. While this can be one of the best resourses for making your Burn go smoothly it can also be fairly uncomfortable if you ask a common question without doing some basic research first. This group is heavy on "radical self-reliance", which doesn't mean leaving others in the lurch, but means theres an expectation that people will at least try to find information before asking. "

Such wisdom, none of which is yours and you didn’t even credit the source.

Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

I remember reading that when it was originally written but I can’t remember who it was.
I do remember it wasn’t a vacuous shrill.

Not sure, but if I were to guess, it sounds to me a lot like something Savannah or gaminwench would write.

Thanks! I knew it wasn't mine, but I appreciate the compliment. :D So many times Eric has come along and covered a topic so nicely I've just thought, "Welp, pack it up boys. This subject has been put to bed." :lol:
