I reviewed Raven's messages too, and I don't think we over-reacted. Her first comment to another new member was: "What religion? You should know better than to bring that up here." That comment might be ok between two friends. But for one new member to say that to another new member is hostile and rude. I don't want new members getting a bad impression of us by reading emails like this before they ever come to a meetup. I think we should confront things like this, and if the behavior does not improve we have to cancel their membership. Keep in mind that Raven is a member of 210 meet ups. How many do you think she attends regularly? I suspect she was just planning to be a member on-line and not face to face.
