Look But Don’t Touch

This PSA has been running the rounds on Facebook and Twitter (though not, it seems, on Hash-L or HashSpace). I’ll give it a push by reposting it here (if it’s hard to read, click on it to view it full-size on Flickr):

Li’l Debbie Downer, That’s Me

A good friend of mine, a long-time hasher, recently posted this to Facebook:

A local hasher emailed me, asking me to weigh in as a elder and condemn a guy for getting physically violent at a recent weekend hash. I’m [...]
