Is it mean? Yes. Would I do it? No. But, I know people at Noisebridge who
seriously would.

I don't bring in nice things just for this reason. Which does limit my
Noisebridge experience in some ways. However, I also accepted what
Noisebridge is and not what I'd like it to be if I made my own.

For example, we see there is a lock now on the money box in the
refrigerator. And, on the donation bins. I don't think this will be
challenged, but I could be wrong. I see, from recent conversations, why
people do have this.
