do we get to a point where just HAVING a camera is means to harass people?
I am pretty sure we don't want that because we know how great images of and at burning man can be..
I dont want anyone to create an environment where people feel uncomfortable to do perfectly OK fine upstanding legal thing.
People have threatened, in the various dozens of times this discussion has happened, among other things, violence, against those with cameras at burning man.. (surely youve seen them!)
I know theres a big group of people out there who HATE the loud dance music that keeps us up all night, and the roving art cars blaring directional sound that is actually physically dangerous (as in hurt you for real) at various art pieces...But I dont ever recall people suggesting to publically humiliate, harrass and injure them.. onsight.. maybe i missed it!
if you want an idea?
take a tip from the B.E.D.,... the potty project might even be a good example
Educate people on what you feel is proper use of cameras and imagery of people, acts.. art.. camps, whatever.
stifling art and creating an uncomfortable environment for participants is NOT ok....
you can do a lot better than witch hunts.
