[Noisebridge-discuss] Tired of Noisebridge BS, As of Late

There was a long and very productive conversation about this last night.
 There are two basic fronts on which this is being worked:

On the social front, we clarified the existing Noisebridge policy, which is
that if someone is being a disruption it's totally reasonable to ask them
to leave and not to come back until they've come to a Tuesday meeting to
talk to the group about their behavior.  We clarified that a series of
low-level acts of scumminess is just as actionable as a big drug-induced
violent freak-out.  There is also now an "85" page on the wiki, where
people should be put before they get 86'd so we can keep track of people
that others are having problems with.

On the technical front, several efforts are underway to improve the door
entry systems; by far the most viable seems to be Kelly's "hot tub" system,
which involves revocable PIN codes; when I left the space last night,
people were hard at work ginning up a prototype keypad entry scheme.

In general, we are starting to do an OK job of engaging with this problem
on a broad and nuanced front, rather than picking one cure-all scheme and
implementing it full force...
