I'd disagree. The Placement crew qualify as the space police, or at least the space rangers. I was drawn into many incidents that involved folks being relocated by Placers, after they had started set up of their camp.

I found myself in a Kafkaesque situation on playa this year regarding my camp's placement. Damned if I do, damned if I don't. I got conflicting info and actions from different members of the Placement team. In the end it all worked out, in the sense that all my campmates were able to camp together, but it was a significant energy suck for me (and for the Placers, I imagine). I hope that all their team members are more on the same page next year. And I hope that Placement, as a group, is on the same page as the Gate crew, because conflicting info between Gate and Placement was also an issue. No hard feelings; it is a logistical challenge. And I totally appreciate the help from the Placers who were sympathetic to my situation and worked on my behalf.
