I understand Spec, and thanks for the response.

I'm outta here, and you'll all be better of for it, and you know it.

Smooch!

sure, and i am really sorry that means its not for you anymore. i guess we can all chalk up another mark for those who fuck things up for everyone else with attempts to justify or deny it.


and my comment was not a 'take it or leave it' thing, especially with someone starting their own board. i do honestly wish more people would do that, this place does not have the functional ability to be all things to all people.

Adrian does a column every issue called "Adrians Rant", hence the title of this way off track little thread.

I'm ending my rant. My point has been made!

In the next month, America is going to vote and i'm thinking that there won't be change made because if eplaya is a slice of America we are in trouble. Only one person, Mysterious D, got it. This thread is a JOKE! If anyone of you knew what the hell i've been writting for the past 8 years on Eplaya is exactly opposite of this thread. I made fun of and insulted my own beliefs. If this community can forget who and what each of us has posted in the past, then there is no hope for America. NOne of you remembered that I started the same rant several years ago. Many of you replied the same way. How are you going to change the world if you like many nations, including America, apply the same reactions that didn't work in the same place. Korea, Iran, Terrorism will never change if you approach the problem just as our administration has tried and failed.

For what you should have remembered about me:

I am a contributer to Piss Clear and love the paper eversince I read the first issue back in the 90's. I think that more should be printed because I can never find them later in the day!!!!
I am a photographer.
I fight for equal rights for people of all sexualities and sexual preferences.
I am a Hellenic- I worship the Greek Gods. I though you would have called me out then.

If you people couldn't see that then not only is America in Trouble then so is Burning Man.

You're not good enough to Queer because you're all Hetero's

There I said And I'm Glad!

PS- I think Adrian's the cutiest thing on the playa and so is his wife!!!!

After reading AIIZ's post perhaps a few of us, myself included need to go back and reread the thread and where he was trying to go with it.

And now I feel like an ass for what I've said about the whole thing. If I keep putting my foot in my mouth I won't have any shoes left to wear, I'll have chewed 'em to bits.

I come back to the core belief I have that people are fundamentally good. Yeah, even my online enemies. So while I'll get mad, snort, fume, or worse there is almost always the capability to forgive and to learn from a situation. Not everyone shares that mindset and that's ok but it's what works for me.

A II Z, you might not accept it but I will make a public apology for not understanding your intent with the posts. The flipside is we all can learn from this...online communication has some serious flaws sometimes.

With that I'm done with this, I'm moving on. Next topic?

You left out a third group - those of us who realized it was all a sham but were too apathetic to do anything about it.

Finding all this very confusing, luckily thats how I likes my internet. But if you're going to go out and make a satirical thread at least put a little effort into the whole witty apect.

The funny part for me, reading the paper here and there on the playa (mostly on downtime @ Arctica), is I always thought Adrian was female. Not really the kind of thing I ever stopped and thought about, more of just an assumption.
You call it malt liquor, I call it breakfast.

Yes, he does have that androgenous thing going.

Back in my trysexual days I would have no problem doing him. he's really cute.

A note to some that haven't got over this thread:

I have never attack anyone personally, other then this thread and I did it to everyone equally as a farce. If it did attack you, it was only your posts, not the information you gave me as a confidant- and that's fair game as I have been attack because of my posts.

Heteros are the cause of over population!

Stop hetero sex now!

This says it all!

I don't know if anyone has noticed that I never said anything negative about homosexual behavior here. I mention the words, gay, homos, queers, queens or what ever and all they are labels. Fucking labels that all. Most accepted by the gay community in everyday use. Some are even used in TV show titles. www.homoagogo.com

But read the replies. What it brought out was an image of you. That you applied your connotations, your biases, and your prejudices!

Please read though this topic again and learn something about YOU!

Me,

I’m just a flame.

While I live

I burn bright

For some day

I will expire.

Here's an interesting topic on slurs.

http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/r ... hp?prgId=5

Are All Slurs Created Equal?

When Isaiah Washington, one of the stars of TV's Grey's Anatomy, used a homosexual slur to refer to a co-star, it caused a stir, but not the kind of anger that comedian Michael Richards generated with his verbal tirade of racial slurs. Guests look at the origins and power of insults.

They have tippytoed around this story so much I still have no clue what happened.
So I have no opinion, except that this n-word, f-word horseshit is an insult to everyone.
Remember that the obscenity 'n-word' was invented just to give strength to the term and minimize slashing someone to death.

Do you think it is a good idea to add power to a word?
It's easy.
Just ban the word.

If they feel unable to report a story, they should just stay quiet.

Oh yeah, Badger I can now see the depth of our friend ship, but that just how you Black Rock Rangers are right! Ranger are so cocky telling us civies what to do all the time from up high on your pedistal. So you guys wear skirts right. Bet you're a fag too wearing those sissy skirts.

and your name, badger- they like to go down in holes. Hey which one, the cornholeys. You should change your name to Ferret. Yes Ferret Boy fits you fine fag boy!

And Eric

Those olympians god are a bunch of fags too. Yes don't you know they reside in the fag house of Panty-ons! That's gueer!


Its posts like these that I did not see the humor in. All I saw was a hate crime being commited. Now that we are on page 3 he/she is trying to backpedal out of the vile remarks made on page 1. Personally I hope it doesn't work, I hope people see him/her for what they really are. I really don't understand why we have to put up with trolls like this. This BBS is supposed to be about BM but many threads that are kept at the top have little to do with the event. Seems some folks just do all they can to discourage burners from coming here and show the ORG in as bad a light as possible.

It is not a hate crime period. it is a freedom of speech. The open discussion forum is not limited to BM. of course if you knew me and my past posts you would have known that this was farce. if someone calls you a queer why would you get upset in the first place- unless you thought that being one was wrong.

Is that what you really felt?

If I called you a Hetero, would that get you upset. Or Beaver Trapper? Or Clam shucker?

Perhaps NO, if you were hetero, you might even feel proud.

Is that the truth?

You know, no one has to call anyone anything. Freedom of speech also involves discretion. Yes, even under our beloved Constitution, there is what is called "protected speech." Like not yelling fire in a theater kinda deal.
