I am a big fan of Gate/Perimeter/Exodus volunteers and staff. They work incredibly hard outside in the blowing dust (all those moving vehicles create a LOT of dust, constantly). It just is not cute to have someone saunter up and say "I made it past you, ha ha, here is my ticket." I remember the story of the naked girl hiding in the RV bathroom with her ticket in her teeth for the person searching to find - cute thought until you remember that the driver had already been asked how many people were on board, etc..... It just makes the wait in line longer for the rest of you.
I was at a music festival last weekend and was approached by a young man who made the mistake of saying to me that he wanted to try to sneak in to Burning Man. It is a shit for brains mentality that is far more tolerated by people who go to "consumer friendly" events. He got my "you have shit for brains don't fucking steal from me you ****" lecture.
Anyway, I think the reason that Gate and Perimeter does not pass on the stories of stowaways is that they really don't want to give any signal that it is interesting or worthy of 10 seconds of fame. Stupidity is easily encouraged - like the last words of a redneck, "hold my beer and watch this".
