[Noisebridge-discuss] What happened?

In the interest of cross-hackerspace openness, I will say that about a year ago I banned a person from Ace Monster Toys' meat space, who often used the online handle shades.  I don't think he was likely to have been physically dangerous, but he was disruptive in this similar kind of way, and did other things against Ace's policies despite repeated warnings. May or may not be the person in this chat log.

Best,

Positive attention breaks the loop. Be nice to trolls if you can do so genuinely, and simply ignore them if you can't.
