    The "Cynthia Debacle" (as you're calling it) was a series of actions
    taken by individuals. If you disagree with those actions, you should
    communicate that to the specific people involved. They are not
    hiding their identities, and are readily accessible both by email
    and in the space itself.<br>
    <br>
    I think it's fine to disagree with what they did, though I do not.
    However, I think emailing "the list" instead of the specific people
    is unexcellent.<br>

              &gt; The fact is that the kicking out of cynthia has been
              a huge drama fest and<br>
              &gt; makes noisebridge look bad. &nbsp;I think it was not worth

              &gt;<br>
              &gt; My friend Stan who has been hacking since before most
              of us were born<br>
              &gt; resembles cynthia in some ways; &nbsp;an old person who
              enjoys talking and<br>
              &gt; cooking more than hacking. &nbsp;He is also the admin of
              the SPAZ server. &nbsp;He<br>
              &gt; comes to noisebridge and sometimes cooks gourmet food
              for everyone.<br>
              &gt;<br>
              &gt; He has been involved and witness to MANY collectively
              run spaces, like the<br>
              &gt; Cannery and Project One and a bunch we've never heard
              of.<br>
              &gt;<br>
              &gt; And he says this is a BAD SIGN for noisebridge.<br>

              &gt; If this is true, I can not justify supporting NB
              anymore. &nbsp;I know<br>
              &gt; everything she says about her behavior at NB and her
              general cleanliness<br>
              &gt; is true. &nbsp;She is an MD and has at least one science
              degree, so AFAIK there<br>
              &gt; are many good reasons for her continued presence at
              NB. &nbsp;Not being<br>
              &gt; financially able to be a full member now seems to
              have saved me from<br>
              &gt; regretting I gave them much, if any money. &nbsp;IMHO her
              mental health was<br>
              &gt; improving from contact at NB with healthy and
              intelligent people.<br>
              &gt;<br>
              &gt; NB now is already falling into one of those
              collectives where a few<br>
              &gt; evil people are working to drive out the rest. &nbsp;Many
              collectives<br>
              &gt; have withered and failed for reasons such as this
              incident.<br>
              &gt;<br>
              &gt; Is there any documentation showing exactly who ganged
              up on her?<br>

              there...i was kicked out of<br>
              &gt; &nbsp; | Noisebridge by a band of vigilantes who called
              the police to say i was<br>
              &gt; &nbsp; | trespassing and disruptive (apparently for coming
              in and cleaning up after<br>
              &gt; &nbsp; | them!) because they really had no substantive
              complaint (a vague that I am<br>
              &gt; &nbsp; | smelly, messy, and, get this...loud) they are so
              vague on the complaints<br>
              &gt; &nbsp; | that it is suspicious for made -up stuff<br>
              &gt; &nbsp; | I can't be there tomorrow but would like to run
              into you anyway. I can<br>
              &gt; &nbsp; | check Internet tomorrow AM and if there is
              another location I can see u at,<br>
              &gt; &nbsp; | let me know<br>
