sac games, you are ignoring my posts? is it because you really are a burner and you understand what you are doing is wrong, not because you are selling the BM 'experience' but because you are taking from all the effort others are putting in without returning anything? Or is it bevause you know that you have no moral defence on the whole package you are offering?
Burning Man, for me- i can't speak for anyone else, is more than just TTiTD it is about the effort and thought you put into going and understanding that NOCOMMERCE isn't a rule, it is a philosophy, BM costs money to put on and its costs money to get there, that Sir is unavoidable. However once you get there financial transactions stop. end of. In Fact anything you do with other burners is meant to be without fanancial gain in mind. hence to no touting your 'service' on here
People spend A LOT of money putting on the art you are charging people to go and see and paying other people to make sure they can do it for No Effort, the people you are selling this to aren't going with the NOCOMMERCE in mind you are selling it people that it simply doesn;'t matter enough to to DO IT THEMSELVES.
It doesn't matter if other people are doing it, if i can talk to them i will ask the same question.
Are you Sacremento Games, Happy to be bringing financial transactions to the playa?
To help justify those experienced burners who say "it was better last year" (when coca cola didn't sponser half the camps)"
to all the other commenters on this post, for and against what is it that bothers you or inspires you about this?
I read your last post a couple times as I tried to answer your concerns. I didn't realize I left out unanswered questions.
Thets go to the first paragraph, you are telling me that there is a spacific was to burn..."your way". If a group decides they do not want to spend months in preparation and set up their own camp, then that is their choice.
Second paragraph- I am not selling anything on the playa. There will not be money exchanged other than if we need ice and to do grey and black water removal. At what point did I try to tout on here. I haven't posted anything here to sell. The Mod would have called me out on it already.
When did I charge to see the art? My clients paid the same $320 as everyone else did to see the art.
And once again you are preaching "your way" to burn in the last paragraph.
I think I have answered all of your questions. If I accidentally left out anything, please ask again.
Last but not least to answer a different post from someone else, I am not selling gifts on the playa. No monies are exchanged.
