    We've not yet been able to agree on a 
satisfactory definition for "hack". Strikes 
me as a bad idea to use that word other 
than informally. 

    There are people who contribute and who 
take advantage of Noisebridge facilities in 
good ways (such as attending workshops and 
classes) who may not seem to fit a definition 
of "hacking". 
    I know of a few cases in which people 
that I believe are good for the community and 
space have been harassed for not "hacking" 
according to someone's idea. 
    Seems to me that we should tend toward 
acceptance rather than rejection: our 
community will likely be the richer for it. 

    Seems good to be aware of one's feelings 
(such as frustration or anger) before one 
attacks or rejects someone else.
