To escape the minor restrictions on free speech I have reluctantly put in place, all the docile and loyal citizens of Noisebridge-discuss must do is in future be kind of polite, talk about hackery things sometimes, and not be complete WTF crazy scare-away-anyone-within-six-kilometers-of-noisebridge.

Such action will be gentle, forthright, not actually scary, but may prompt 'you know, man, I thought this was like an "anything goes kind of place" and now I don't even get to talk shit about the awesome bong I was going to make in the lasercutter? WTF? IS THIS EVEN AMERICA ANY MORE' reactions. This is to be expected. Stay in your cubicles and keep calm.
