Usually after you talk to them a couple minutes they're cool.

It's a problem that I dunno what to do about because allowing it to happen sucks too.

This guy came and was really rude demanding we leave immediately. We left (no point in arguing with jerks) and ended up crushing next to some really awesome people (as we found out next morning). They are now our playa family and we reunite every year. I'm so glad that idiot chased us off or that might have been my first and only year on the playa.
I would not want to camp next to people who are asshats when you meet them already. Not that I don't think one should not cut everybody some slack - Sunday and Monday are stressful days after all. If you can't solve the problem while sitting down, having a beer and talking it through, you don't want to camp next to that person. Unless, of course, you are far along in your setup already.

No way was I going to make them pack their shit up again and move. Unless you're literally wall-to-wall in your camp and seriously don't have the room (rare - in many of the camps I've been in, there's at least some extra room), it's just the decent thing to do.

I certainly wouldn't.

Just one guy guarding an acre of land? I have a hilarious vision of him running frazzled from one side to the other while claim-jumpers slowly encroach from all the borders. Can't stop watching, can't sleep for even one minute...that guy's burn sucked.
