Note: I too saw the grey dog, apparently owned by "veronica", who 
apparently shit in the shop.  And "veronica" didn't clean it up.

I think that even though there is no sign, if a person brings a dog into 
the space, lets it wander away, and it shits/pees in the space, that 
person does not meet the minimum standards for being at noisebridge and 
the effort required to train that person to be excellent is far more than 
the return on investment to the space would be.

In other words, if I discover someone whose dog is off-leash and they are 
not paying attention to it enough to know whether it is taking a shit in 
the shop, I will ask them to leave until they can come to a meeting to 
talk about it.  And I think other people who love noisebridge should do 
the same.

I think that we need more confrontations with people who are, literally 
and metaphorically, shitting in the space, to discourage them from coming 
around as much and, literally and metaphorically, make more room for the 
kind of people who do not need to be confronted for their negative acts 
because instead they are doing something excellent.
