I hope not camp, too. Although, I suppose that it's possibly more honest to sell them that way.
I didn't like the direct distribution sale last year--even though that's how I got my ticket--and the idea of flagrant re-selling of such disturbs me. It's a fucking privilege, don't be la-di-dah with it.

I agree with all of the above, oh finned one. Crony-ism is crony-ism no matter how you cut it. "Preserving the fabric of Burning Man" be damned.. and especially when you have certain camps using their DD tickets as bait to new and well paying members.
..and then even after they boast about it publicly, they're awarded even more.. to do the same damn thing with. *cough*Area 51*cough*
Hell.. it appears that we haven't gotten rid
of the tier system.. now it just comes in different form.
Anyway.. I guess it's a bit of a jump to assume that DD tickets would be STEP-able this time around. Wondering how the re-sale/re-allocation of those will go though?Disclaimer: I don't give a f how BM distributes their tickets. It's their party and they can do what they want.. I'm not worried one bit about my ticket. Party on, Wayne. Party on, Garth.
