[Noisebridge-discuss] Cynthia asked to leave the space

I heard the argument while working next to the elevator.  It was the first time in weeks I had come in to work.
The only comment I will make about Cynthia, is that her attitudes at that moment shouldn't be allowed in a work space. It isn't a general "public" space, it's a community space we fund for a specific purpose.
A bunch of people were united in asking her to leave. She escalated the problem and made a bad vibe for everyone, including me, even though I wasn't involved.
The right thing would have been to leave and defuse the issue, then bring it up later in front of the whole community, as she was asked.  Locking herself in the bathroom deserves a ban IMO.
And I'm done saying anything else about this drama.

I find Cynthia annoying, but by itself that's not enough; Jesse and I were both there when she came in, and we'd both heard enough about stuff Cynthia had done that we felt comfortable making the call.  I'm leaving the conversation open because the meeting gives people a space where they can talk about what they saw first hand, instead of my recollection about it.
