I recall the statistic being close to 250 registered art pieces placed on playa in 2010.

Dr Helix wrote:I don't know if I would go so far as say malicious, but there definitely seems to be a "don't tell me not to" attitude that borders on extreme by some people. I had one girl who when we came to change batteries was pulling her foot out of a hole she had made in the heart. When we asked her not to stand on it (which had caused the hole) she said she could do whatever she wanted to and attempted to do it again. My girlfriend shoved her ass off and told her to leave. She went ballistic and started screaming that she would be back with her friends to "fuck this up good!!!!!" Nothing happened, but I wonder where the line is? As I said in an earlier post, the lesson for me is that I won't make any more art that isn't bomb proof for BM. I'm still new on the playa (three years) so much to learn I suppose.

Yeah for sure. But I guess all we can be is more vigilant for each other.
