The moderators of this list (e.g. Jill and Omar) work extremely hard on it and without compensation. You benefit from their updates. Be appreciative.
Their policy DOES prohibit posting of MLM and commission-only items.

Nevertheless, many of you good people have the urge to reply to everyone to announce that you would like be removed from the list, turning a blind eye to the certain knowledge that this is the same list through which the moderators deliver much benefit to you. You also know that neither Thedie Green nor any other MLM poster has the ability to remove YOU from the list because it is not the hijacker's list to modify. 

Here is how to gratify that urge in a useful way:
When hitting "reply,' ask for "Thedie Green" or whoever the inappropriate poster is to be removed from the list rather than asking for yourself to be removed from the list.
This alerts the very hardworking moderators as to the identity of the poster who is being inappropriate.
This also alerts everyone as to the scammy nature of the MLM post, etc. If you are going to email everyone with your complaint, make yourself useful and make the complaint informative instead of self-important.

Thanks,

Subject: Re: Re: [socialnetwork-1959] Opportunity

Seems like many of us reacted negatively to the undisclosed MLM pitch in the guise of an "opportunity". Replying "take me off the list" to hundreds iof people is equally annoying and inappropriate.

YOU and YOU alone control your Meetup settings. You and you alone can remove yourself from a mailing list (absent your dismissal by a disgruntled orgaznizer.) As an alternative, you can adjust your communications and privacy settings to receive a daily or weekly digest, or no emails at all, from any given group.

Seems like three improvements might be in order.

1) An active moderator who nips inappropriate posts in the bud.

2) A written policy statement of what people should and should not post (with a friendly reminder that replying to ALL is NOT a proper way to send personal communications to an individual member.)

3) A primer on how to use Meetup in general. These ideas have been done to death and we don't have to re-invent the wheel  - just cut-and-paste from an existing source.

This is a really good group with much potential. Let's not mess it us, okay?
