Listen, the conversion we're having now is more revealing then anything I
said. KnOwing the NoiseBridge culture, if I were an FBI agent and I wanted
info on NoiseBridge, I'd show up in person, and then wait for the drama
Shit storm on the list to ensue to see who'd talk about it and what sort of
Shit they'd say.

And to them, I say, BRAVO!
