I have never slept here longer than a short nap. Ever. Any time I am 
here at night or early in the morning.  You can ask anybody that's here 
during that time (Isky, Robert, Benny, etc.).  My usual routine when I 
am here late at night has been to drive Benny home in my car so he 
doesn't have to walk.

I have no need to steal.  Plus, a lot of food that's brought in here is 
food that I pay for myself.  The alleged stealing is gossip that Robert 
started two nights ago while he was, ahem, sleeping here overnight at 
Noisebridge.  He also put up a curtain over the tea room and slept here 
all last night.  He and I were the only two people here two nights ago. 
  He awoke in the middle of sleeping in the Turing classroom, ran out of 
the room for some bizarre reason, and then claimed to have heard a 
noise.  He then blamed was my dog.  The next day, with no rhyme or 
reason, without even discussing it with me, he began telling his buddy 
Fabian behind my back that he was going to start personal private 
investigations into me.

On several occasions, I have - with witnesses watching - taken money 
from the glass donation jar in the kitchen and moved it to the locked 
jar specifically to prevent theft.  I also update the drink money page 
whenever I take money from there.  When tastebridge money has been 
spent, I've also provided a receipt for any expenses.

I'm not a gossip, but a few nights ago a $20 bill mysteriously got 
stolen from the drink donation box.  I counted the money before I left 
at 4am to see how much money we had.  The next day, when it came time to 
buy drinks, the $20 was missing.

This is all ridiculously childish.

Andy, it is unexcellent to accuse people of stealing, particularly when 
it is not even you doing the accusing.  Instead, it's an "anonymous" 
gossip that you're relaying.

Gossip is un-excellent.

This accusation was leveled by a fellow who claimed to see this take place at 3 AM while the witness was gaming at NB. I've been told others have seen him do this on other occasions, but rather than do things in the dark behind closed doors, I thought I'd ask the list if anyone else can corroborate. Maybe we can set up some sort of formal process for dealing with thieves  in the process!
