You know it's just camping, right? You take your own water, and pack everything out. Sounds like you are planning for a thing, where everyone is on the same page for simultaneous experience. oooh virgins need "elder" wisdom... what? First year, go camping, see the sights.

I was just rolling my eyes at the glove myself.

I lost a blinking LED plastic star-shaped earring, a blinky hair thing, and some lip gloss. And I think a tampon (unused!) as well. Should I post in the lost and found forum? I appreciate any advice people can give.

The earring was pink! The lip gloss had no flavor; it was just red.
I am really bummed about the loss of the tampon; it was a family heirloom.

Hello lovelies,

I lost a plain white envelope on the playa with $10,000,000 in cash inside. It is (was?) both my entire life savings and my entire net worth. Without it I'm completely destitute. In fact, I'm writing this from a cardboard box under a bridge with a banged-up Dell laptop that I stole from Starbucks earlier today. If one of you lovely kind souls can reunite me with this envelope, I would be so delighted. Please let me know if you have any leads! Thank you!

Y'know, it's about as lame and petty to give as much negative attention to this attention-whore sparklepony as you claim she's craving.

Why thanks for letting me know! And it's about as lame and petty to post the above in this thread instead of in the thread you're referencing as you claim my actions are.

The thing is, BBadger, I know I'm being lame and petty about the sparkle pony . And I'm certainly not proud of that. In fact, I've mentioned (or at least implied) somewhere around here that I struggled and felt guilty all week on the playa about my negative feelings toward her. I consider myself to be a pretty tolerant and accepting person IRL for the most part, and I really enjoyed everyone in my camp for different, individual reasons. And fuck, one of the principles is "radical inclusion." But she really rubbed me the wrong way. A *huge* part of that is that she was subtlety bitchy to me from the get-go before we even had any sort of real interaction. My feelings for her were both something I struggled with and something I did not feel I could honestly discuss/confide in about with other campmates -- I knew NONE of the people I camped with before meeting them in BRC, while most of them already knew each other. I figured eplaya was a place I could do so in a relatively anonymous fashion.

Anyway, back to the somewhat vague snark directed toward people who are clueless about it. That's way more fun.

Oh I was definitely being disingenuous when posting it here -- but that was the point.

Anyway, the "lame and petty" part is not regarding your feelings towards the other person, or whatever guilt you may have over it. Yeah, there are people who rub us the wrong way. Sure, maybe their transgressions are beyond forgiveness and acceptance. It may even fun to vent about them for a bit. That's all fine -- but don't get to the point that it becomes obsessive.

What's lame and petty is that you keep posting about that person like someone jealous of a celebrity. Are you going to keep on following her on Facebook and post every last attention whoring incident? Will you bring her up anytime "sparklepony" is mentioned on the forum?

What is this person to you?

Think about it: can you imagine how pleased that attention whore would be to know that someone has dedicated this much attention and vitriol towards her? Being hated is just about as good as being loved -- if not better. It's great to be the target of some huge diatribe where the other person lays out every last thing they can't stand about you in complete detail. Then you follow up with a nice "TL;DR" and go to the next thread.

But anyway, for you...

Show some indifference in the matter. Ignore the bitch and move on. You've got better things to do, and a fan-base here on the forum. Ignore the people beneath your attention and you can concentrate on what makes you feel good.

Some of us work for years to be mocked on PAGE TWO, even resorting to covering ourselves, but alas, here is the newbie garnering the all the attention, again! Good try Badger, but the odds of sparkeleponey reading this is nil, I'll save my groveling for when the fur bikini is present, for now, here, I'm throwing my support...err...I mean....yeah littlebird, sparkleponies suck!

The only sense of wonder comes from simple faith in others, critical thinking for oneself is against the 14th Burning Man principle.
