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
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.
