Odd to introduce paywalls at Noisebridge
Nick found sleeping at Noisebridge twice.
Nick sat in a chair with eyes closed, not asleep. Talking with Josh from 20:00 to sunrise. Verified independently twice.
Nick found sleeping overnight at Noisebridge by another source several times.
Noisebridge has no rule that prohibits sleeping at Noisebridge. It's absured to discuss banning someone from the community for _appearing_ to be asleep. Nick has not abused Nosiebridge.
Nick is not an example of the type of sleep that Noisebridge has had a problem with.
Here, mean well for the space, here to hack are key qualities. Cannot get to a point where you depend on Noisebridge.
Nick's case too gray to warrent banning.
Would be great if the report came from several independent sources. >not many others care to come early to wake sleepers
Are there other courses to action to take in this case? >Whatever course of action results in people not sleeping at Noisebridge
People who abuse sleeping at Noisebridge will adapt to morning check-ins
Nick came to this meeting to Nick's credit
Asking sleepers to leave is appreciated. Others should help.
Banning Jean Jeacques
Jean fount sleeping at Noisebridge twice.
Yes, once I was sleeping and on the other occassion I was resting my eyes, in the midst of a 2-hour nap. I thought the way I was awoken was rude and I felt unheard and not listened to. I do not abuse Noisebridge. I don't make a habit of sleeping at Noisebridge.
All partipants of Noisebridge should try best to engage in excellent communication.
Jean Jeacques was rude and irritated when awoken. Said that he would not stop sleeping at Noisebridge. 2 hours is a long time. >I have and will not make a habit of sleeping at Noisebridge. I was snide and not rude.
