Does noisebridge have a Ignore_all_rules clause? People should at least hear about it.

Noisebridge affinity area orientations. Are you a software developer who occasionally uses a hammer? Are you a chef who doesn't know what a Pony is? Are you a junk hoarder with a spare kansnoodelater who doesn't know that *that* it is precisely what Noisebridge needs to survive?
