I'm cancelling the NB fundraiser and Noise Orchestra concert I've been
planning because i've been harassed and abused for months, online and by
Details below. Feel free to stop reading here.
-The Fundraiser announcement i put on the Events page got repeatedly
vandalized for about a week. I would fix it, then it got re-trolled,
repeatedly. So i deleted it.
-When i requested wiki admins block anonymous edits to the NB events
page, Jeffrey Carl Faden stated that would be "against Noisebridge
principles". I asked him, "WHICH Noisebridge principle says protecting
anonymous vandals is more important than protecting Noisebridge
projects?" He did not respond.
-The same thing happened to an annoucement i posted about an
equipment donation from Inventables.com (worth over $600). So i deleted
that announcement too, and did not attempt to promote the event. As a
result, the Inventables folks, who brought 6 pizzas, 3 cases of beer,
and a CNC mill to donate to Noisebridge, got barely any turnout (well, a
lot of non-hacking squatters were happy to eat the pizza).
-Somebody, posted my phone number, real name, gibberish, and
pornographic verbiage on my noisebridge wiki page. (cached copy)
-Wiki admins ignored my requests to delete the offending stuff, and
would not give me access to delete it myself.
-Jeffrey Carl said he blocked the offending IP. But as a web dev, he
would know it's easy for a troll to get a new IP, so he would know that
won't stop the vandals.
-Jeffrey Carl informed me there's no option to delete the trolled
versions of my userpage. Oddly, Wikimedia documentation tells how to do
teratoma: @jeffreyatw good job immortalizing johnny's info
forever on the wiki.
jeffreyatw: haha. i noticed i did that. whatever it’s available
in a bunch of other places too.
Not sure what that means.
-Somebody advertised "Johny Radio" selling non-existent hockey
tickets on craigslist, with my phone number. i was bombarded with phone
calls from people wanting the tickets.
-Countless anonymous prank phone calls all times of day and night.
-Somebody tried (unsuccessfully) to get into my LogMeIn account,
which might have given them access to my personal computer, or my
-Impersonated on Discuss with an abusive post.
My feet are turning away from noisebridge. Apparently, that's someone's
