[Noisebridge-discuss] Asked to leave: Tony Longshanks & Veronica

Hi Tom,

I understand that Tony having been trapped in the closet was a while ago, and despite that he shouldn't have been there, I'm sure he didn't intend to become trapped.  Unless he's been a repeat offender, shouldn't he at least be given a second chance, as he's likely learned his lesson?

What I would like to know is:  Was it previously consensed on at a meeting that he should be banned from the space?  And if not, is this your main or only real argument for telling him never to come back?  What authority do you have for telling him this, as opposed to simply telling him to leave and come back to a meeting to discuss this, which is the usual procedure?  As far as I recall, no one has suggested Tony has ever been a threat to anyone in the space, so I would like to know more about why people are insisting that he be banned.

I am just trying to find out more about this issue.
