    Oh ok... From that experience I found out that every meetup needs a moderator/leader, the person who initiates the meet up must commit to being there and giving it direction.

    Yeah, meetup.com went through some changes in the last year, for which there was an incredible backlash. For those who had not been monitoring their groups, they came across surprises like this. They seem to be going back in the right direction again but they will need to do a lot to be better than a LinkedIn Group or an e-mail list like mailchimp.

    Met some other cool people who where also very confused about the venue. The "organized" meetup was a FAIL!

    Worst Meetup Ever!
    Who organizes a meetup and then does not show up?
    The booked room turned out to be double booked by a improve class and the security guard moved the meetup to another room.. Sat in the room for 10 minutes by myself and then finally joined by Starlet; we talked and she was very interesting.

    But where's the organizer?
    and anyone else would surly be confused... I don't appreciate anybody wasting my time like this.

    If you believe that Ben's post above is spam, then please report it as such using the link under his post. I have done so because I have seen him do the same across many other groups in Calgary. By many people reporting the abuse, we can send a message to him that it is not appropriate, if Meetup has not already figured it out.
