Hey guys,
PopTart here, 2012 Baal-Mart camp coordinator. For the (new ) record:

One of the new entrants to the camp was stirring up trouble. This was unbeknownst to me our my fellow core members who rarely use ePlaya. As such, my first reaction was a bit heavy handed complete with a few F-bombs. As far as censorship goes, i stand by my previous words, and would not have minded them staying here forever. I've met the camper in person, and he seems like a decent fellow, but is still at a learning phase in life. Mal/Baal-Mart is a snarky camp, but a 100% hate free zone of happy, accepting, mellow people. We do not tolerate the kind of negativity being directed at Simon, on his own thread, in this virtual simulacrum of The (True) Happiest Place on Earth. The Root Sciety is quite frankly one of the coolest camps there is, and much of that is due to Simon's direct efforts. Furthermore, this thread is a collection of some truely awesome music. I apologize intensely for the actions of my camper, who has been talked with.

Let's move on with the awesomeness.

Since everyone has something to say about this. I'll let you know that I never flagged anything, as I don't like censorship either.

Oh and I love how this got twisted into me being the bad guy. :roll:

geeeeeez. this thread got quickly out of hand. Simon, you're a fun dude but as someone who consistently dishes out snark on eplaya and hijacks posts you sure were touchy on this thread. i dont know "cpart" but his posts did not warrant being reprimanded or chastised with such alarm. i've seen far worse by the regulars on eplaya (Simon included) and it's just been biz as usual on eplaya. censorship does indeed suck and i've learned to treat most of the ribbing on this board as aggressive ball busting but sometimes the violent stuff and name calling goes a teeny bit over the line as trilobite has shown.

anyhoo, i think most people (including cpart mind you) are totally EXCITED for Root Society coming back and kicking ass! i'll be there dancing and helping you MOOP so your asses arent red on the map again. :wink:

I asked cpart to cease and desist three times.

Three times he continued.


For him to play innocent is disingenuous at the very least.


Homie, this has nothing to do with you.


An apology and admittance of guilt would be nice..


and BTW, the thunderdome is how old tymee burners Settle our Differences as opposed to actual fisticuffs.


There is a huge difference than threatening someone, i called his ass out burner style, and he balked.


What happened after that was a result of reaction to his actions.


He was called out twice...by pop tart this time.


I stand where i stand and am willing to move forward but i will not budge on the fact that i was provoked and responded in kind after more than fair warning..

Now lets end this bullshit, either accept responsibilty or shut up.

As a neutral outsider, I didn't think cpart didn't anything so atrocious. Sure, he made fun of Skrillex. And before I know it, shit hit the roof.
There has been plenty of thread hijacks before and it has never stopped because someone was asked to cease and desist. Why should this be an exception?
In my world there's only legible and more legible.

Im gonna chalk up the above comment as one from somebody who didnt see the gifs that were removed or the sig lines that got changed and just say you are uninformed.


One last thing.

I apologize to the board and especially Trilo for all of this...i made his life more difficult as a result of my actions and am truly sorry for this.

I also apologize to anyone who may have taken my snark in the wrong way.


My snark gun is getting more accurate, and i try to reserve it for deserving targets.

When i am wrong, and that happens, i try to correct or apologize on line or off...

Anyway, back to the show folks, this is about as sincere as youll get outta me for awhile i have to go hit my punching bag for a half an hour and then ill be fine.

Oh and cpart, one last time


If you want to post your type of music please feel free to do so.


In BA'AL marts thread would be nice.


You see, just like at burning man WE select the DJ's who will ne playing we also choose the music.


There are 14 other threads to post music videos in if you are so inclined.


By posting in here , youre saying 'fuck you' without having the balls to actually say it...


Maybe im wrong, maybe you just feel you MUST post in Root Society's Thread because god told you to.


Either way, you would think that one would just. Want to move on instead of poking the monster again and again and again.



Some people NEVER learn.



Until they do.

Sigh...

cpart - Please, come on over to the Baal-Mart camp thread and post your music videos. Or make a new thread and post your videos. You have good taste, nothing against that, but sometimes its better for everyone involved to just walk away. Like breaking up with my last girlfriend.... To much history, and its best to just part ways and move on...

There is so much to do, so much to make, so much to enjoy, and so much ePlaya to do it on... no need to linger here...

In 2010 Root Society (if i can remember correctly) had 2 domes and video wall. The set up was sick, they had set up so they took over both sides of 10 oclock.

When we walked up this first time,our minds were blown, the video wall faced out to the playa and was fucking awesome.


SOP- do you know how the set up will be this year?

yes.


those plans will be released to the public soon.

we're still trying to find a virgin for the sacrifice, and let me tell you, we've checked the reno area and have decided it's pointless and are going to utah where the pickings are better.

Thanks for the fresh tunes Simon and friends.

Just a thought...would Roots Society DJ's ever consider mixing in some James Bond music and movie dialog?
Santa loves that schtuff and is close friends with Mr. Bond ;)

moonrise, we use only the finest subliminals and freshest, gourmet ultra low frequencies.

and the only espionage we do involves tasty beats, finding them, and disseminating the message of the Ooontz.

besides, i like the star wars meme better. :twisted:
