I've heard people yell out names and heard people wailing.
I don't begrudge primordial screamers at all, I doubt anyone tells them to shut up, and I should not have made it appear I am "against" all noisemakers.

I didn't know of recurrent problems at that burn.
Is it variants of the "down in front" thing?
This is just part of Burning Man, and the "down in fronts" people or the Freebird people, and even the whoo-hooers are more amusing to me than getting my goat up, but in my post I felt if only one person gets from me and others in this entire thread that they don't have to be a who-hooing asshat and could instead just enjoy silence, then I don't mind being scolded when I reach into what could be potential reasons they do what they do. Big mistake for me.
I have no idea if politics or policing were responsible for the Mutant Vehicles to turn off their sound, but it seems to be working. I don't care why they do it, but they do it, and I'm grateful. I only wish whoo-hooers would understand the concept of silence that they can be a part of.
Eric: I respect the scolding, I am humbled and embarrassed.
