I just joined the mailing list to see what was up after a number of
former members/hangarounds warned me about how so much energy is wasted
on these debates and squatters.
What's sad is that a few years these same people tried to get me to join
nb, at this point they're warning me off.
My anecdotal data, sample size is 5 people I've talked to who all have
said the same thing: stay away, the good work people do is drowned out
by drama + creepy squatters.
No offense intended to anyone here, they were very complimentary of the
people doing tech, just really disillusioned with drama+squatters making
the space annoying/unsafe.
