eeeck I'm quoting myself! But it wouldn't let me edit to a post that's been responded to.
I wanted to add that exposure to different personalities, modes of thought, perceptions and modes of expression are a big part of the reason we go back to the event and a big reason people come here. If it was just a constant series of "I agree" or "you're so right" it would be boring here and its value would be diminished.
When we go to the desert we know that we will be potentially exposed to baking sun, merciless wind, maybe rain, sleet or hail. We also know that there will be some people who do things we consider less then perfect, like speeding in their art car, adversly judging your art or farting upwind of you. I don't think it is reasonable to expect that the eplaya would have no annoyances either, such as people who disagree or may come off as abrasive.
