Consensus and Discussion
(Patrick introduces Consensus)
- Mitch proposes the unbanning of Lee Sonko
- Mitch: Lee was banned during some really unexcellent times in noisebridge's past.
- Kevin: At the time, NB introduced our anti-harassment policy. Just to add context, the person who did the ban did in fact feel harassed by Lee. However, that was a long time ago.
- Torrie: Today's the first day I've ever met Lee and they don't give any big red flags or negative vibes. So they've at least fooled me that much. Seems fine to me :+1:
- Patrick: Most of the historical record around Lee's banning was a discussion between two people. Didn't feel like consensus, its very murky, and there is little evidence that it was legitimate.
