We get it. You don't like Tom. But stop trying to frame all of his
Noisebridge policy suggestions as trolling or somehow insincere. Renaming
the membership is an actual consensus proposal, and the "high cabal" part
was clearly a joke. If you look on the consensus page, it says "Noisebridge
Council". (Personal note: yeah, I think we could come up with a better name
than council. And I'm fine with the current names.)

Please quit purposefully misinterpreting what other people say.
