[edit] Consensus items

[edit] Proposals from last week

  • 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.

[edit] Proposals for next week

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.
