If what I read is true, I'm very tempted to become an advocate for her...she may not like that but again it sounds like she's going through a lot. And instead of flames she needs support.
K- I kinda like the diplomatic approach you throw into your posts, but you are not her guardian protectorate. I thought after one post of hers telling folks to look at her website, she slammed you in the center camp thread for putting some info out. Public domain, baby.
If she is looking for sympathy and an excuse for her actions, it won't happen here. You know that. Compassion only gets you so much. Being an ass, and denouncing everyone else's views does not get excused. I could look and go "aahhhhh." but I'd still be going in the same direction.
I won't throw out some analogy, or sob story. We've all been there, but, I was not let off the hook. I had to be responsible for my actions and words, and deal with getting flamed by my friends and non-friends. It is
a good thing to be able to seperate emotions and bullshit from what you put out there. If you go anonymously onto a public forum, you are setting your own bait. You better be ready for what you catch.
I may not agree with you, but but what I've seen on this and the old e-playa, you are generally willing to consider differing views without being all pissy. So, you get the respect. People have to take care of themselves.
Didn't we all have some miraculous epiphany our 1st time? Not all of us thrust our opinions of what it is
on other people, and told them they were negative cynics. Sure she might have been overwhelmed and seen god while on a candyflip. Doesn't mean we all have to know it and obey her revelations.
Arguments need two sides, dissenting opinions, listening. She fails on the listening portion. Arguments are what bring changes. If everything was liked by everyone, this thing would still be on Baker Beach and none of us would be here that weren't already in the know.
Acceptance of differing views is expected, but not necessary. Remember HellCo? Or Cacophony Society's It's a Small World? Or even better..Capitalist Pigs? Burning Man should not be homogenized into a nice family. It needs the arguments and dissention to grow. Otherwise were stuck with the same E-ticket rides (Disney reference for all you non-Californians and young folks) like Thunderdome (not a knock. It serves it's purpose when someone pisses ya off), which for some old folks is an institution, but for newbies, it just wows them.
Oh yeah, the point. She has to get her shit together and take care of herself in a responsible way. I post publicy, and if I get shit, I read it, try to see their point of view, and usually discuss with points. Not just tell them they are full of shit and just stay home since they obviously don't get this mysterious "it". Or if they annoy me with inane rhetoric, I may go for the poking stick.
Why is it that the annoying ones are named Tawn-E (yes that's a jab)
