If something is so mean-spirited that you're afraid of the reaction of a new user who found the thread, it's probably too mean-spirited to even belong here. This is a good place to vent, and we've got a healthy disclaimer on the first post in the thread, but I think the transparency makes for accountability, and helps keep things in check.
The opposite approach would be better: visiting this thread should be part of the forum introduction process. This would not be to ruin or embitter peoples' impressions of the event, but to clue people in on the realities of the event and the people who attend it. After all, this whole thread is built on recognizing lack-of-self-awareness.

I am, by the way, kidding when I say anything about a waiting period regarding reading or posting in this thread. :lol: For two reasons:

* Newer people don't seem to venture into Open Discussion at first; it's too vast and strange and unspecific. This is why we so rarely get n00bs in the Bar Thread. Neophytes seem to aim first for the Introductory areas and areas of greatest immediate "need": tickets, rideshares, and Q&A.

* It's not always immediately obvious what this thread is about to the people who get lampooned in it, or they would have enough self-awareness not to provide grist for the mill. :)

Same here.

Sometimes I read this thread and then go on an exciting Easter Egg hunt to see who's being discussed.

It seems the yearly classic free "miracle ticket" beggar threads that used to be the yearly classics have been replaced with the new yearly classic "I'm new and I need to join a camp" threads.
I remember when there didn't ever seem to be any threads like that. Now it's one after another.

Yeah but then when you find it it's usually so much less amusing than the snarky comment in here that sent you searching :(

Also I'm posting in here with only 54 posts total... Does this mean I've been de-n00bed?

I could not stand it.

"a theme camp centered around the ideas of the personal being political, and vice versa, how this happens, the microcosms and macrocosms of actions, events, people, places, and ideas and how the smallest action can be the biggest statement"??

I'm actually really into " ideas of the personal being political, and vice versa," and issues of gender, sexuality and race, basically I kind social justice issues super interesting but I can't imagine a Burning Man Camp based on it being any fun at all. :-/

When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye halve run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
