Do you actually believe those two statements? I almost expect you to say "not
wittingly" next!

The front page of the website now says "Noisebridge is open 24/7 to Members,
Associate Members and guests thereof".

It seems pretty obvious that people who don't know anyone there would, upon
reading that, get the impression that they can't just drop in. I think most
people (by a large margin) who have done awesome stuff at Noisebridge didn't
know anyone physically present the first times they visited the space. So, I
think this policy will have a significant negative impact.

As I've said before, I think you're killing the goose that lays golden eggs.

I am especially disappointed that this extremely drastic change was adopted at
a meeting with only four members present. I hope the membership of Noisebridge
will reconsider this.
