This disturbs me in context with burningman somehow...

wouldn't you rather gatekeep in a situation where no one could even question the potential for abuse?

Around Gerlach one of them decided it was a good time to tell us he planned on stowing away because he didn't have a ticket.
We reallllllllly wanted to kick these guys out because the were super-leeches and not even hiding the fact, but the stupid ass Burner Spirit got in our way and made us watch them like spineless jelly fish. We decided it wasn't worth the trouble to boot em, and just kind of walked around them.
Now, do we send stowaways and their rides home without refund? I would love to see that! However I think it's a little impractical.

In short, they are participating just as much in breaking the social contract as the person actually sneaking in. There should be no distinction between the two.
