Hundreds of people visit Noisebridge every week, and nearly all of them are excellent to each other!
This page lists people who have fucked up, to the point where they are no longer welcome at Noisebridge and may have their pictures posted on the cork board to the left of the elevator (top floor) if they persist in returning.
If you have photos of banned individuals, please e-mail them to noisebridge-discuss.
If you are listed on this page and would like to not be, either because you think you should be welcome at Noisebridge again or because you agree to not return, the best thing to do is probably to email noisebridge-discuss to explain the situation.
Some thieves were recorded breaking open and stealing right out of the donation box. One of them was Cliff. Super lame. Other names unknown. Junior is the other donation box thief. He has also been 86'd for other reasons as well.
These scummy guys should be confronted and asked to leave on-sight.
Adam (Joseph Adam Moore)
Banned by consensus 2013-10-01 for physical assaulting another Noisebridge user and concerning behavior.

Mike was subsequently officially banned by consensus.

Around 6 feet. Frequently wears a Giants / Bears baseball cap. Thin, scruffy. Eyes wander around frequently. Kinda looks like Scumbag Steve. Officially banned through consensus — the whole deal. Repeatedly shows up at the space anyway. Kick him out on sight.
This guy went into the back classroom and took Rayc's wallet out of his backpack. Rayc saw him with the wallet in his hand and the guy tried to say it was his. He then started running towards the door and was tackled by Jake. We made him show us that nothing was in his pockets, and he kept avoiding the big pocket in the front of his jacket. This pocket turned out to have Sasha's smart phone. During the search his crack pipe fell onto the floor and broke into many pieces. We let him go and told him not to come back.
See the 85 page. Stole from the member's shelves and from me. -- Rayc
Male, early 20's, Asian, black beard and hair, 5′ 8″. Please post photo if available.
Jonathan was asked not to come back, due to allegations of organizing illegal activities from within Noisebridge and theft. A few days later, he had a proxy return to the space a few days later on his behalf to retrieve blankets, etc. that he'd apparently stashed in the darkroom. However, what his proxy took was apparently not the blankets that he wanted, and he shortly thereafter came upstairs and went into the darkroom, himself leaving with items that appeared to be bedsheets. The fabric his associate had taken was found in a heap at the bottom of the elevator and returned to the darkroom. Several days later, Jonathan returned to Noisebridge with his hand shoved in a gym bag, claiming he had a gun. He continued pushing past people to get into the main space, screaming constantly about killing everyone and then himself, and that everyone was to leave, or he would kill them all. He also claimed that the cops were hot on his trail and would arrive at Noisebridge at any moment, and that he intended to provoke a suicide-by-cop. Not sure on whether or not he did have a gun, people were not taking a chance as they filed for the exit. However, Derek, Jedi, Rayc, Ben, stayed behind, calling him on his bullshit. Four people swarmed him as he made a b-line sprint for the fire escape. They wrestled him to the floor and removed his bags away from him. Jedi arm barred and escorted Jonathan down the stairs to the sidewalk, bringing him over to the quickly-amassing phalanx of squad cars. Immediate consensus was that he is not welcome in the space again.
He was with his brother Alex who did not do anything sketchy and should not be banned. -jake
Older guy with longish gray hair, who has often come to Noisebridge with bedding, and has used Noisebridge as a home from time to time. He has been asked to leave, and not come back. He has come back anyway. He has a gate key -- if you see him, demand that he give you the key.
