In regards to the "plyia" serpents and dunes, I spent weeks covering both years of the land speed record attempts as well as and I can tell you the serpents and dunes were there - we used them to get some elevation when shooting the cars. I haven't been back since '97 so I can't attest to any increase in number, but it is not a new phenomenon. Or would that be penhonmonnh?
allanon2 wrote:that is now the area with the most dunes.
no way that area had those dunes in 1997
the dunes that phoptographers stoof on were at the edges of the playa but those are not like the dunes on the plaay
those dunes are very differnt they have plants on them and are created by sendment moving in from the edges of the lake and nto in the middle of the lake
the dunes in the middle of the lake bed are very differnt than the dunes i have seen phtogrpahers standing on the edges takign pictures.
the dunes that are now all over the lake bed are very differnt.
just adding both sides of the issue and as he said he has not been to the lake bed since 1997.
Tancorix wrote:Allanon02, I have a question for you.
Many of the replies to your comments haven't talked about the content itself but about the typos and grammatical errors in your posts. I know that you are a middle school science teacher so obviously you have an education. My question is why do you create posts with so many errors? Honestly, what's going on here? Do you have trouble typing? Is this a keyboard hardware problem? Is the eplaya dropping out on you when you hit submit? Do you have a physical disability that causes the issue? What gives?
It's obvious you are passionate about your cause; you're getting on NPR to express your views which is not easily done. Yet on here your message is being lost in a hail of typos and glaring errors that as others have said causes us to question if we should take you seriously or not. So I hope you don't take this as an attack. I simply want to know once and for all, why do you post with all those glaring errors? Can you answer this honestly and truthfully? And don't be afraid of getting flamed for what you write, if you want to get your message out, then you need to address this. I look forward to your reply, as I'm sure a few others will too.

Alas, under "Rex Scates" this is not true. And your arguement about sharpening his wits is note. I haven't actually said what I think I'd do.Tancorix wrote:According to the State of California, there are no teachers credentialed in the state under the name of Rex Skates.
Check for yourself. I wonder what happened?
I'm not sure that there is a basis for that. Unless they wanted to give us a 10 or 15 year permit. The management plan for the conservation area (approved last year) was 3 volumes and had many maps--therefore was quite expensive to print, even apart from the research etc that they had to do for the information.TheJudge wrote:Ya know, why not have an EIS done?

But when you initially came here to the board with your pukings you said that you're a school teacher. Is this not correct? How can it be that you've effctively passed your self off as educated (degreed) yet by your own admission you can't spell and by our observations you seem to be a hair's breadth away from being functionally illiterate.
Did you misrepresent yourself? Did you try passing yourself off with similar disinformation when you spoke to the local news media about your objection to the event? I guess what I'm asking is if you'll cop to not only being a fool but a liar.

Another tidbit: Almost everything in this thread mirrors the "This is for all threads to goto about www.stopburningman.org.
This guy isn't going to change because of anything we say. He is getting media attention though and that makes him dangerous in some respects.
Another observation: Badger has cornered him with facts time after time and he still keeps coming back, changing his approach just enough or opening a new thread so the same arguments get rehashed again and again. We are sharpening his arguments with our rebuttals, and making his job easier.
What to do.....what to do? This is an interesting problem.
Tancorix wrote:I was wrong on the teaching credential. Mea culpa.
For a teacher I can't help but expect better posts than he's putting out. One can pick up a copy of MS Office 2003 for Students and Teachers for $149 or less if they shop around, and posts can be run through a word processor before being dropped on the board. There truly is no viable excuse.
As for his arguments, we're going to have to provide full cites from now on. It's about the only thing he can accept...and even if he doesn't others who come across his work certainly will. And that's what counts.... influencing those people.
This sword cuts both ways, when he makes a statement we should demand more accountability and scientific proof from him. Just because his ass gets jarred around a bit more in a Neon doesn't mean squat about how bad playa serpents are. What does the overseeing authority (BLM)think? Raise the bar, demand more...next time he makes a claim I'm thinking that's what I'll be asking for.
