I would also like for this to be discussed again in a meeting. I brought
this up at the meeting not last week but the week before. But, I have not
been in the greatest of health and have missed a lot of meetings.

It was also brought to my attention that Jesse Z. wants to come back to
Noisebridge.   I do not think this is a good idea.  Basically, I don't want
to be around people who have behaved in the ways that either Jesse and Dru
have behaved.

There are so many good things about Noisebridge, and about its openness.
To keep that good for as many people as possible we do need to have good
boundaries.  And ask people who have shown great disrespect for others by
non consensual behavior to stay away and work out their issues to learn
better behavior in some other context, rather than being in the middle of
an space without much in the way of rules or safety.  Sexual assault and
other violent behavior destroys our ability to trust each other. I want to
be able to trust people at NB, and to be able to tell others they are
likely relatively safe there.
