Cognitive dissonance much? Just a day earlier you said this:

I don't think that scenario would be infrequent, but that scenario isn't
actually my main objection. It has always been the case that people without a
key or code occassionally cannot get in to NB, because nobody is there or
nobody feels like answering the doorbell, and I think that is fine. My
objection is to the drastic shift in experience of being told that guests must
have an individual member claim responsiblity for them while they're there, vs
being told that they're welcome to use any tools there that they feel
comfortable using and that they're responsible for themselves.
