rebecca: the safe space policy is posted on things around the text, black text on yellow paper; we want everyone to be as comfortable and welcome as possible: no harassment, no monopolization of time, be considerate of conversation content. if you are not considerate in these ways, you may be asked to leave. If you are in a situation where you need assistance, you can go to pegasus.noisebridge.net/safespace/ (posted around the space) and request assistance from someone on the #space-guardians noisebridge slack channel anonymously or non-anonymously
