Let's pretend BMOrg has policies in place to eradicate the scourge of PnP camps.What is plug and play?
Before we start casting stones, I want to know is how are you going to determine whether a camp is Plug and Play or not? What is the standard here?
Playaskool is an outrageous example. They made their own goofy video, they got all this attention, the supposed camp coordinator even visited this thread to defend his practices. They practically celebrate
their PnPism. It would be easy to identify some camp like Playaskool as PnP. There are others too of course. We see their ads pop up from time to time, but really they're far and few between.
For everything else, the lines are a bit more blurred. What is the fine line between a regular camp and the apostasy practiced by PnP camps?
I look at my own camp situation. When my friends and I joined the camp we knew straight up that there were camp dues. These covered things such as setting up the kitchen, the evap pond, power, generation, etc. The following year, the dues doubled, to afford a camp shipping container.
All these camp-due-covered things could definitely constitute plug and play, and quite frankly, there are quite a few people in the camp that could be considered PnPers. Sure, they aren't just lounging about being fed grapes and being fanned with palm fronds by man-servants (or at least not paid
ones), and sure, they cook their own meals (aside from whatever subgroup-cooked camp dinner there is), but other than that, they aren't doing much. I don't consider our camp Plug and Play, but compared to other camps, the amenities that are managed by a select few would be skirting the line.
To what extend does collective pooling of resources, or having some people set things up for others, constitute Plug and Play?
The sentiment is great, but it's one thing to be against cancer, it's another to isolate and figure out how to remove it. Often there is collateral damage. Will the solution be more like surgery? Or chemotherapy
which affects the entire host? Sometimes the cure is worse than the poison. Sometimes it even kills the host.

Sorry, the gas chambers are already filled with Burgins
