I am hardly representative of "the general population of Noisebridge," at
least I don't think I am. I've made a career out of saying what I think
regardless of whether it makes me popular. I briefly attempted to be the
spokesman for a certain different consensus-based group here only to fail
miserably & realize I could never fill that role, as I need to be free to
say exactly what I think about things regardless of whether anyone else
agrees with me or not. In any case, your response as quoted above strikes
me as a more negative reaction than necessary. That seems unfortunate, but
I can only take responsibility for my words, not other peoples' reactions.
One thing, though: its been a lot more than two times. No matter, I don't
mind. Especially now, as many things are changing for me & I will most
likely be the one leaving the space before you. Changing for the best, mind
you: I am not leaving in a state of bitterness or resentment, not at all.


PS If I end up sending the other response to this same thread that I'm
working on right now (to someone else whom I believe is actually harmful to
Noisebridge, which you are not), it may offer perspective: my response to
you really wasn't that hostile, in the scheme of things. I may not end up
sending this response; I'm weighing it right now. It would be so much
easier to just say nothing, especially since I may be leaving soon, but
it's always easier to stay silent rather than challenging shitty behavior,
so I'm on the fence....
