Hu hu, according http://www.ignitionalley.com/faq it's exactly how
Ignition Alley is described: #community and #tech

So, Buddy, according the Yves definition, "in any sense of the word"
becomes "in every sense of the definition"...

Good luck to get a good definition.

On another hand, every people reading the page could decide by himself
if it's or not an hackerspace according his own expectations. Clean
the list isn't an huge priority.
