I don't think this is a constructive comment. I am OK with Patrick, as
are several others.

I am often at NB during the day, and can vouch for most of what
Patrick says regarding his actions (sleep, rides, money into locked
jars). I have no knowledge of the incident regarding Robert.

Also, do we have it clear that the main issue is *residential* use of
Noisebridge, not sleep per se? Lots of people take naps at NB.

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!
