I'd like to point out your horrible grammar. It is "your" not "you". And you know in the world of online communication this now means two important things(the same goes for poor spelling, improper understanding of there and their, the misuse of its versus it's, etc.)

1. Any points you attempt to make have absolutely no validity
B. You are obviously dumber than I, so insulting you at will about your hygiene, sexual prowess and/or your base characteristics as a human being are all fair game.

Do you attend the same Burning Man I do or are you living in a reversed universe? There's so many things wrong with that last post, especially the 2 quotes above to keep me busy for hours to break them all down. It's so irrational that it's not worth it.

Funny you should post this...I was just explaining to someone that Burning Man is what you make it and that if something is "wrong" that you need to at the very least see what you can do to effect a change yourself (if not make the actual change yourself).
It's what you make it.

Ok, I'll bite- what characteristics are true at Inverse Burning Man? Do we conjure the microscopic ice girl with carfully aimed lenses that focus the rays of the sun to a sub microscopic point on an event sigularity? What?

If you'll notice, I was commenting on grammar.. but I suppose in my Ice Girl Universe the two things aren't mutally exlusive.

You've won and evening with Jimmy Carr.
I'm thinking that should have said: You've won an evening with Jimmy Carr (whoever that is). So since you made the spelling goof what were your suggestions about people that do that again? Oh yeah, I remember now.

Now don't those comments look silly?

You're right that's what it should have said. If you'd have checked Google before replying you might have seen that Jimmy Carr is a British comedian with a very dry wit, often japeing the unintended other meaning of a double entendre or using turn of phrase to appeal to the ridiculous and sometimes therby the humorous.

Yes... of course they do... I'm glad you noticed.

My complaint has been on file since 1998. Has the org ever replied? No. Who do I complain to about that?

I swear I'll have it notarised. Don't make me.

I'll put a real complaint here and not some smarty ass thing.

WTF happened at that GIANT dance camp on the corner of 2 o'clock and ESPL? Wednesday morn I saw what appeared to be a total meltdown, or an alien abduction. Picture if you will a field of 300 bicycles as far as the Playa horizon. Empty dancitorium campiteria, void of all human life.

A slight breeze puffing through...plastic water bottles and coats and flash lights and trash and liquor bottles and beer cans and googles and gloves and blinkies and all kinds of shit EVERYWHERE! So much for don't let it hit the playa. Musta been a STRONG batch of dance drugs and everybody was waaaaaaaay fucked up and couldn't remember which bike they belonged to and dropped all their shit in the processs of not-bike-finding and "I forgot..." and walked away. whew. What a mess.
Bah! Psshhh!

Hey.
C`mon.
That was NOT real complaining.
It was just more of the relentless bitching and whining that this thread
has digressed into.
If you are simply going to bitch about something,
could you at LEAST....add something smart-assy in there
to break up the monotony abit.......GEEZ.......



some folks......grrrrrrr

Oh Great
Now a whining little "report" about some bad girls erotic tastes....
....and your complaint is ? ? ?
You people have a lot to learn about complaining.
It`s all about the nagging questions.
Why are you not getting it ? ? ?
Do I have to constantly jump in here and actually direct your anxiety for you ?

Isn`t that just great
I love this avatar but I had to reduce the res to NIL to get it to fit
within the cowardly restraints on file size that is dictated by our
most powerful uber-hosts.
How am I supposed to convey just what an evil dustbooger I am
with just a mere morsel, such a tiny dollup of bits ?
I mean get real....Are we going to take this crap?
Who do we have to speak to/blow around here to set the defaults just
a wee bit higher?
It`s totally unfair and I am totally revolting. (against those I`m complaining about)
But it`s not over yet. (my complaining)
I`m working on it
but thanks for pointing that out.....

SBC...."SumBitchCallers"
And about that fucking message that`s on my answering machine
every day when I get back from lunch that says:
---"BLEEP_BLEEP_BLEEP_BLEEP We`re sorry. It is not necessary to dial a zero or one before
making this call. Please hang up and try your call again....BLEEP :shock: BLEEP :oops: BLEEP :? BLEEP :x BLEEP :evil: BLEEP :evil: BLEEP :evil: BLEEP :evil: BLEEP :evil: BLEEP!!!!!!!"
------and then.......

-------repeat--------

godammit . THIS crap is getting very old.

How am I supposed to deal with a message like that?
I would love to call those SBC bastards back.....but:
Who do I call? or Who was I calling that I shouldn`t have added the 0...or....1 ??? Those godam liars! I didn`t call them....they called ME !!!
There should be a law. I`m not sure which kind yet, but there should definitely be a law.
I`m usually really good at questionable remedies for unusual problems
but I would love to find a suitable answer for this one very irritating conflict with my technologies......short of pulling the plug.
Do I cast off my Magnetic Media and Go Digital ? ? ?
I don`t think so......
Oh the aggravation of it all.......GRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !

I want to complain, that clueless people create topics in the eplaya policy thread that have absolutelyfuckingnothing to do with board policy.

Yes, I know you are new, I know you want to discuss some important issue... but ... sheesh.

Yeah. And What kind of boo boo starts a shitty complaint thread under
"Experiences at burning man"?
This delightful exchange should be under: "Experience the Eplaya"
Yep.
I`m about to step down as self imposed facilitator of this horrid little misplaced thread, and stir up some Hooey elsewhere.

I think an "Evil Feelings Thread" might be the answer for the "Get involved" section...for those who tried and failed and are really angry about it.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

myyyyy turn:

We arrived at 5:30am on Monday morning and the only street frontage we could get was near 2:30 & Fetish. What is with all the roped off areas with nobody around for days.

Normally we camp around 4:20 and love listening to the music all night long. It was so quiet where we were and the sun was in our eyes at sunset. And --- the water trucks and the art cars rarely came up our street.

(Thread drift - glad to see my old friends and make new ones.)

I have one. What's with all of those "theme camps" who get prime real estate (i.e., esplanade), and yet seem to offer absolutely nothing to the experience? They seem to be just taking up space. No interaction whatsoever. What did Space Cowboys do??? Do people just register as a theme camp to get in early??? Don't they have to be even somewhat interactive?
