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

I'm sorry to say that I witnessed this happening, and said something and
moved the stuff back. It was not an oogle, tweaker, or a random person who
moved the stuff out of the member area and into the trash area. It was a
few of our own fellow Noisebridgers who didn't want stuff on the floor in
the member shelf area during the meeting last week. I had a feeling there
may be repeat performance.

I agree that the member shelves could be cleaner, but under no
circumstances should things be put in the trash from that area. I'm sure
there is a solution to cleaning the ancient cruft that doesn't involve the
loss of the members' personal projects.
