The only reason no vending is allowed at Burning Man...

Postby Guest » Mon Oct 27, 2003 5:11 pm

...is because Larry and BMORG want to make all the money themselves. If vendors were selling coffee and snacks, that would cut into the profits BMORG makes from the center cafe. If vendors were selling Burning Man t-shirts and baseball caps, that would cut into the profits BMORG makes from merchandise. If you can't see this, you are extremely naive.

If vending of Burning Man t-shirts and baseball caps started at Burning Man I'd stop going and if you can't see why then you are extremely naive.

No you wouldn't. You'd keep going even if the event was jointly sponsored by Chevron and Halliburton. Larry and BMORG will walk all over people like you as much as they want, and you will always let them.

Okay, I'll take the bait.

Fuck you, you fucking fuckwit. You have no idea what or what I would or would not do. Spout off all you like but you haven't a clue or you are extremely naive.

But I DO know exactly what you would or would not do. Your psychological profile is just like that of most Burning Man attendees: a follower looking for a place where he or she belongs. Sorry for the hard home truths, buddy, but I'm telling you this for your own good.

Just like we'll call you a useless, sak-o-shit troll as much as we want, and you'll always just let us.

Why is that when a troll comes along sometimes it is just impossible to put the stick down without poking it to see if something disgusting comes out of it?

Well, if you poke that stick up his ass, you may not want it back.

In my next life, I want to come back as someone who has time to spend half-cocked'ly deriding that which I do not actually understand, by casting uninformed and partially-baked aspersions into crowds of its supporters who could care less what I think. Just to see what it feels like.

Well said, AG! I don't even have enough time to do all the shit I really, really care about! What luxury to have time to fuck with other people's experiences just for fun.

There is no doubt in my mind that WillSmallPenisRoger and DE FACTO are one and the same. Except Will actually contributes more.

Uh, I don't think so. I see subtle differences in sentence structure and other tendencies that has me saying they are not the same person. Look closer, not at the message he wants to convey but at the choice of words. There are a lot of clues for the trained eye.

Nah, BoyWithPenisSmallerThanWill's unique perspective of things suggests he's been around for a bit. I'd guess he's a bitter, disillusioned, ex-volunteer or undercompensated DPW lame-o. Further, the continued Marian/Crimson ragging suggests either a unrequeited return of affections by one or both of the women at some point or they've always dismissed this little shithat as the spooky little loser that he undoubtedly is. Yeah, either ex-DPW or some invisible little putz who probably hung out at the HQ for a year or so doing 'volunteer' work so he could get close enough without coming on as a stalker or grovelling lap dog searching for attentions, acknowledgement or a friendly face.

This guy's been around for at least two years I think. His first post I'm betting are the one's that suggested Will was responsible for the unfortunate death that took place up near the 80 acres before the 2002 event.

Sad, sad boy.
