>> The Noisebridge Board of Directors is illegitimate. Bylaws are irrelevant, when they are abused to advance a non-consensual agenda on the part of a small number of very vocal people. The community of Noisebridge is legitimate. The community of Noisebridge should engage in a campaign of cooperation with eachother, and non-cooperation with the current Board. That includes the members of the Board. The Board should cooperate with the community of Noisebridge, but not eachother. Thankfully, they are already doing that.
>> My legitimacy in this context is potentially questionable. I rarely go to weekly meetings, all I want to do is teach a goddamn class in a fucking hackerspace, without being assaulted by fear-mongering on the mailing list. I deserve no such luxury. My satirically-violent speech two sentences ago was unacceptable and I should be banned. My banning, however, may very well not be legitimate, and I will find somebody to proxy-block it.
>> Nevertheless, ban or no ban, I am on STRIKE, probably. I might not teach another machine learning class until Noisebridge has re-established itself as a champion of some sort of new consensus-approved, community bought-in decision-making process that I will probably have very little to do with, for lack of time. I am willing to help with this effort only through continued contributions to Noisebridge via teaching people for free, when I am no longer on or off STRIKE. I guess?
