I will say here that jonny radio, I think you are being a little, erm,
disingenuous. Is naomi against preventing theft? Is leif against improving
noisebridge? Are you out of your fucking mind?
No offense intended to those among us who are out of their minds.
Also, erm, you say that homeless people mostly don't hack anything. Fuck
that shortsighted and bigoted dismissal. Homeless people are people too, a
body as diverse as those of us with homes. It's just oogles who mostly
don't hack anything.
