[Noisebridge-discuss] [drama] Addressing individuals

The only thing you "said" was snickering about it. You said nothing to either one of us. And you have consistently encouraged Dan's belligerent and disruptive behavior, because you knew that others were bothered by it.

I understand your suggestion. In the case of "The Reverend Mik" and Dan
Chinaski, I intended to tell them both in person this morning that I
thought their violent behavior last night inhibited the workspace & made me
uncomfortable in the space, & that since I said that last night & they
disregarded or pretended not to hear it, I was going to take the next step
& post it to the Disgust list. This is the same thing that happened with
another individual (it's not a secret, but I'll refrain) a year or so ago
after I confronted him about some mega shitty behavior on his part in the
NB kitchen: not only did he not take responsibility or show any contrition,
he escalated things further, at which point my options were to engage in a
physical confrontation with him in the middle of the space, or bring it to
the community's attention. I chose the latter.

In the case of Daravinne, I intentionally broadcast personal info about her
as an attack because I know she's a very private person & would hate that.
I, on the other hand, hate having 3 years of work stolen from me, first by
police, then by her. We're talking about things I've worked on on a DAILY
basis for the last 3 years, which I have been unable to touch for the last
2 months. I knew I ran the risk of arrest, jail &c when I holed up in the
darkroom in the unused lab at UCSF Parnassus, but I didn't expect it from a
"friend," even one who had shown previous hints of her "true colors" in the
past. In other words, airing that sort of personal attack is not something
I would normally do, but you know the saying: all's fair. She promised to
let me get my files off that computer before she took it back. She broke
her promise, then failed to return the data to me after a reasonable period
of time. That's all there is to it as far as I'm concerned. But I will keep
my promise to J. & say no more about this, for now.

JCF, your suggestion is well-intended, but assuming your post was at least
partly inspired by my posts this morning, you are basicall
