A derogatory term for the people who attend the Burning Man event. It mainly refers to the cliquish almost cult-like aspect of the event itself. The event is supposed to be about freedom of expression and acceptance of all. Sadly to many "participants" of the event this means "We accept everybody as long as you are just like us! This is mostly observed on social websites like The Burning Man Corporations own website "e-playa" or on sites like Tribe.net where cliques form tribes with names like "burning man a**holier than thou" to attack anybody outside of their cliques. .
"I asked a simple question on Tribe.net but was attacked by the so-called "Burners" because I was not a member of their little clique
