Cedric,

The whole point of the sex offender registry is so that the information can be made public. You are welcome to ignore it. But some people, quite legitimately, wish to take special care when dealing with a person who has been convicted of a sex offense. Consider how few sex offenses are even reported, much less result in a conviction. Chances are close to 100% that a woman you know has been the victim if a sexual assault of some kind. Lets consider giving her a second chance to NOT be assaulted.

Cedric. You probably won't be banned from Noisebridge. It is hard to ban people, even known sex offenders. They have many ardent defenders.

-Rachel
