There we have the crux of the matter. We have people at the space who think that if they follow their own whims, their knee-jerk reactions, and whatever axe they're grinding at the moment, that, by definition, is good for Noisebridge. And if it isn't good for Noisebridge, then they should get their way anyway, because they're more <insert hyperbole here> than anyone else.

*Can* we? Yes, there are plenty of people who, in fact, have the ability to do this or take some other action to shield our tender minds from these people.
Will we? I doubt it. I can name a few different resources required that will never get used.
And if you recall, this same person has been called out on his behavior IN THE SPACE and nothing was done. Why? Because he's about twenty times more <insert hyperbole here> in person.

The difference between cowardice and apathy is that cowardice at least gets some exercise running away.
