Some folks just need to find a community that's suited to their
personality where they can participate in a meaningful way. Perhaps
reaching out and helping them to access some of these resources
(besides Noisebridge) could move them a step in the right direction:

Asking a group of people to move on from Noisebridge -- after they've
become accustomed to storing food and eating out of here every day --
is not big fun and is in no way a choice lightly made.

We each decide as individuals how to best use the time and resources
available to us, but I think we can all agree that as a group our top
priority is to build Noisebridge into the most epic hacker space ever:
something that will dazzle and inspire children yet to be born. A
thing that will go down in the history books with Anonymous and Perez
Hilton. An 8th Wonder of the Post-Industrial World, with hacks
emanating from its epicenter to the farthest reaches of civilization
and beyond, lifting humanity with its giant and perhaps literal
dirigible of unbridled innovation and empowering technologies, to a
future beyond the stars, all the while eagerly adding new cadets of
builders and makers and problem solvers to our ranks, while graciously
helping those in the surrounding community in any way we reasonably
can.
