I know Google makes it easy, but people, seriously .. quit

Constructively:

We have an Ombudsman as one of the board positions of ATX Hackerspace.
   This person is known as the Member-At-Large, and is re-elected
every quarterly meeting by tradition (it's a hard job, and kind of
draining).

The MaL's responsibility is to:

* Confirm members that have gotten their Signatures (part of our
induction process)
* Listen to issues members have, privately and confidentially
* Bring up issues that impact the membership as a whole at meetings
* Inform the Board of members who are having issues, or who are
becoming problematic
* Act as a mediator when needed, or an advocate when needed
* Provide clarification, and a clear path for resolution, when applying policies

Perhaps it's time that Noisebridge has something similar.   A go-to
person for these kinds of incidents.
