Starting a new thread to call him out as not a member is hardly a
proportionate response to his question buried in a thread somewhere.

The membership lists have never been completely accurate.  We've always
avoided requiring that members of noisebridge hew to any single
technology.  (These are both features, not bugs.)

Frantisek certainly was a member of Noisebridge when he was active in
the eary days of the buildout at 2169, and I'm fairly certain he never
rescinded his membership.  Our systems are somewhat fuzzy (this is a
feature), but I assume dues haven't been paid for Frantisek in over a
year, so perhaps that means he's a hiatus member or similar.

Based on recent behavior I venture that Frantisek is doing a better job
of representing the spirit of Noisebridge than many of the petty
authoritarians who've promulgated the recent spate of rule-making and
so-called consensus.
