Al, thanks for coming by the space so early, and doing the thankless
task of confronting folks who are behaving poorly.

Did you also ask what their names or wiki user names are? It'd be
great to have people accountable for this sort of behavior. This
probably goes without saying, but I think it'd be pretty bad behavior
for someone to lie about being an associate member.

As a member, you are empowered to do-ocratically ban someone when they
are behaving poorly and you think it the appropriate remedy. To be
sure, I urge you to use this remedy sparingly, and only when it really
is the right thing to do. A ban issued this way can be reversed by
consensus (just like everything else).
