Consensus items[edit]

Proposals from last week[edit]

  • To ban Rob 2.0 because he has not attempted mediation, and keeps coming to Noisebridge even though he's not welcome here. --Proposed 5/29 by Tom.
  • Define banning.
  • What does saying he's banned (again) accomplished?
    • Helps make it clear to Rob.
    • Gives members a feeling they are being backed-up when they tell Rob to leave.
    • Gives more power behind calling the police to escort him out. Makes it easier to explain to the police when it's a solid ban and not just that he's unwelcome.
  • Tom wants to use the word BANISH instead of banning.
  • What is the difference between now and then, if we consense on this item?
    • The only reason to consense on a ban is to escalate the issue to the police, and that is not a good use of our time and consensus.
  • We consense on this so we can use the consensus as the tool to keep him out, not just to call the police. "We could if we wanted to," etc.
  • Mike Khan cussed. This is srs bznz.
  • Overall, it's not one thing he has done, it's a culmination of everything. If he's going to be an asshole, he could at least be a respectful asshole.


  • Rob 2.0 (aka Dank) is barred from Noisebridge. He is prohibited from entering the space or participating in the community.

Proposals for next week[edit]

Give the CPA power of attourney to handle our tax issues. (We've had this CPA one tax year. This person cleaned up the mess left by the "tax ninja".)

    • We are do-ocratically giving the CPA power of attourney in the interim two weeks pending consensus.
