I would argue that a very fundamental part of Noisebridge charter is to in
fact listen to and attempt to incorporate rather than override a dissenting

There is always time to mull things over, unless something is on fire.

Also, I would like to note the difference between formally and formerly and
humbly submit a pull request to the whole announcement due to whiplash and
confusion. What the fuck kind of members are we talking about, formal ones?
If I wear a tuxedo on the sixth Tuesday of a given month do I get a say in
how Noisebridge works?  Ah yes, do-ocratic voting. I hereby decree a new
class of Noisebridge members, the formal kind. Please discuss.
