  • Chicago Burners - The 90s are over, and good riddance. Let's move on to better things. Ever get tired of the people you meet online, and at so many events set up online ? The belligerent morons, the backbiting egotists, and the politically correct closed-minded group-thinking cliques ? Chicago Burners is a place for burners in our metro area to go to get away from people like that, and help create the kind of local burning experience that they are looking for. How do we do this ? By getting rid of the silly, 90s era concept of 'radical inclusivity'. If somebody is being obnoxious, the host simply tells him to leave. No haggling, no voting, no politics, he's just gone. Simple, huh ? Life can be, when we let it. Think of our group as being the future 'center camp' for a Chicago-based village. :)
