[Noisebridge-discuss] Lack of due process when Cynthia forced to leave

I resemble these remarks.  As much as I would love to spend time with my
kid in a drama free zone, I'll have to see if someone can watch him while I
attend this Tuesdays meeting to defend Cynthia.

Look, Noisebridge is full of the social awkward.  Cynthia is, presently,
the most socially awkward person in the space.  Who's next?  We're all only
a small cluster of braincells away from being in Cynthia's state, or
worse.

I have communicated to Cynthia, accurately and respectfully, the times when
I need my brain and the subjects I am not willing to discuss.  She has
respected these without fail.

I don't see how anyone else here is different.

As soon as we start excluding people, I wince and wonder when it'll be my
turn.  I will not take, "Corey, you are this valuable" as a guarantee.
