   i want noisebridge to exist because there are lots 
of people i admire and learn from and i can do stuff 
that i want or like to do. for me, life without that 
place and those people would be a much worse life. 
that the email list sometimes explodes over various 
issues is a small part of what goes on there. 
   it does seem a shame that sometimes the explosions 
have a nasty tone. seems better not to take things so 
seriously.

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!
