I would assume you are presenting this question to everyone, but it is 
worded as specifically addressed to me.  I have made plenty of suggestions 
and put plenty of time into trying to solve problems like this and i have 
not had sufficient cooperation or backing.

If you don't think there's a problem at noisebridge, then there is no need 
for you to ask me or anyone to waste our time suggesting solutions.  But 
if you do think there is a problem, I urge you to solicit input from 
everyone and work toward getting people on the same page to agree on 
actions to take.

maybe i'm the only one who thinks noisebridge has become a sad shadow of 
its former greatness and things should change?
