And yeah, even a Luddite like myself knows those other guys are getting into the game at least a little (and possibly way too) late. And I haven't heard you talkin' bout possible commercial apps, either.
:twisted:

no plans on commercializing yet. just trying to get my established patterns/pattens of standards down first. ( that's if I can get Playastation running 100% in time. It's at 85.)

For a sock the avatar is pretty attractive. I was fooled by it.

After this thread started, I wanted to get some PMs for myself like Glittering Clittoris. I never scored in this respect. Oh, and to see if Free Drinks might start making passes.

The best moment was when frenchblue1 declared his undying adoration, and you, Sensei, gently pointed out that becca was making arrangements to 'work' a stripper pole. That made it all worthwhile. You rock.

Oh, and I think I gave Ron the wood, too. And Sir Gothalot, or whatever his name is.

becca's picture is from a free porn site, just washed out a bit in photoshop to look like it might have been taken on the playa.

I know this is a confession booth, father, but I am not ready to give up my identity yet. Please forgive me.

Wait a minute...this isn't true
The best moment was when frenchblue1 declared his undying adoration

I was expressing my thoughts as a whole and directed at no one...please don't cheapen what I openly expressed as a personal trait/quality I look for.

Thx....

Shuu the fuck?

If i knew what you were talking about I'd know if i should kick your ass.

So, Sensei, you'd be pissed if you knew that i was aware of Becca's sock status before you? And that I know who else she is? And that i'm not telling?

Here's a hint, slayer. It ain't me.

Slay away, slay away, *softy the sentinel...*

Sensei is a bit confused. This is how I remember things happening:
becca wrote:My fantasy is to be out on the playa when the sun comes up and turn to a friend who is staring intently at me. We kiss for the first time and then walk away.
Then, in typical smartass fashion, I reply:
Sensei wrote:... and then we both spontaneously combust!
Sorry, Becca. Had to finish your 'fantasy' with something I could live with. Again, I'm sorry.
'becca's' response:
becca wrote:Yeah, I guess my idea was kind of old fashioned. But thats just where I am at right now. (Had a tough breakup recently and hope to just regroup at the burn.) Guys can be such dickheads really. I think that I am just hoping for some solitude this year to think and reflect, if you can get it with 30,000 people around. Maybe that's my fantasy, right?
Which causes Sensei to feel just a little guilty, so I respond with:
Sensei wrote:Becca, you are my official hero of the day. And yes, I am a dickhead.
Then poor frenchblue1 get in on it with:
frenchblue1 wrote:... Give me a women that I respect and adore and I will fight to make her world better each and every day that I awake....
Then I see in another thread that 'becca is looking for a stripper pole to dance on/with/against, so I post:
Sensei wrote:I noticed this morning that a certain person (oh, I don't know who) was making arrangements to 'work' a stripper pole. Talk about respect and adore...
Which I meant quite sincerely by the way...

'becca' responds with:
becca wrote:Oh my god Sensei does this mean something about me? I don't see a contradiction between want to clear my head in the desert and taking a chance on a stripper pole. Do you?
I then respoond:
Sensei wrote:I see no contradiction, whatsoever. You go, girl. Make sure to get a pic of you on the pole for the ex. Guaranteed to have that poor slob on his knees...
Then, 'becca' shocks us all with:
becca wrote:I am a sock. You may announce same to community at large or not. Your choice.
And then this in the CRUSH thread:
becca wrote:Even tho I am a sock I crush Sensei for pointing out that I may not be someone who you should respect and adore. Socks deserve crushes, too
I don't see how I pointed out that you "may not be someone who you should respect an adore"... Where the heck did I say that? You had me all the way...

And Rian? I still think it's you.

Rat Bastard. You're still wrong. Do you think i have the mental energy to keep up two online personalities?

Yeah, i think the whole stripper pole/respect and adore thing was a misunderstanding. But still, there are other ways to know about socks.

Remember that thing called PM?

Yeah, i thought so.

BTW, thanks, coworkerlurker and i were wondering where the stripper pole thing came in. Neither of us had found it yet.

Oh my gawd, I really did get this one wrong. I guess Sensei meant respect <I>and</I> adore, not a cynical implication that Frenchdrinks was popping a rivet over someone [sic] he thought was a sweet, innocent waif looking for solitude and clarity on the playa who was at the same time getting ready to grind the tarnish off the pole at Camp Lookitmyass or something.

Does this mean I have to retract my crush on Sensei? No way. We socks have feelings, too, you know.

BZZZZZT! Judges? Oh, I'm sorry... The judges have ruled that it's not a crush; it's technically a 'sock-crush'; also known as the 'wooden-nickel' of crushes. But thanks for playing our game. Tell her what she's won, Tanc!

Men are just so predictable. So true that a playa sucker is born every minute.

Yes, becca can you feel the power we have over these mortal men. We can play with them like toys. One minute make them feel like Gods and the next turn them into feeble minded boys. Get their fantasies going big and now their little woodies have turn into a wart.

I had a bunch of guys wanting to know where i'm camping- though no offers the Great Canadian Beaver Eating contest damn!

Sorry dudes. What you see is not what you'll get!

So, becca, which is your favorite guy on eplaya- I like DVD, so hands off bitch!

Is it sad that the feeling to be wanted, include, loved, hated, etc. is so strong that people have to waste part of their life by creating an additional message board name to obtain this "feeling." Some actually converse with themselves to gain additional feedback or comments!

Now I do not believe in having a "Sock" because I'm not psysophrenic, and neither am I, so I find it beyond lame that some do.

I see it happen all over the net but I didn't think it was going to show like it has on a Burning Man Board. Sorry to those of you who want to have a sock for nothing other than to mislead people...to those of you who post constructive items through all our your names, I thank you.

To those of you lacking confidence in being yourself...and only yourself, I wish you all the best in finding your inner pride.

Each and everyone of use can be amazing individuals but too many have never been able to truly have self respect and admiration.

Have a great birth at the Burn!

PEACE!...

Oh my gawd Glittering Clittoris is HOOKING UP WITH A GUY RIGHT NOW on the crush thread. And this is after she was outed by A II Z only a few pages ago. What's wrong with ME?

Here's the thing, tho, and apropos Frenchdrinks, if Glitterpus is a sock of A II Z and nobody much here knows A II Z anyway (whose name in the office is probably Steve Jobs or something,) then what the hell does it matter if he/she wants to have 2 identities or 20?

Becca is going to get her OWN SOCK NOW and it's going to be a GAY MAN who is going to kick all your asses. Oh, but I think Rian ALREADY HAS! She rocks. I HATE MEN!

The funniest thing is that people have thought that I'm a guy for years, yet noone has ever seen me on the playa. Funny that.

This is so tempting. There's an accessible photo of Sensei on the internet. It's under his *real* name though, so i don't think i should post the link. So... tempted... must... not... out....identities.. of... eplayans!

Wait! What am i talking about? He posted a link to my photo all over the place!

This place is looking like a sock puppet orgy. It's getting to the point that I have no idea if the person I'm talking to is real or not. Sensei, Purple Koosh, Stormy...those ID's are real. Many of the rest leave me wondering.

It's about to the point that I may leave the eplaya for awhile, or lobby Technopatra for some changes to the TOS and Community Guidelines to strengthen the anti-sock provisions. It's getting ridiculous around here and things need to change or at least get cleaned up a bit.

Oh Sensei, when I mentioned you first on the crush thread I really meant it. And now this. Ouch. I hope this was supposed to be funny. Because I thought you were one of the good ones. I mean, you, like, never tried to hit on me or anything weird.

Can we talk?
