As organizer of this group I have attempted to promote a feeling of inclusion rather than exclusion within Phoenix Sushi East. I also want to make sure that if members choose to grace us with their presence at dinner, that we will welcome them genuinely, treat them kindly and with respect.
It has recently come to my attention that some new members of the group have received multiple unsolicited emails from other members who were looking to "hookup". I find this to be disrespectful and more than a little creepy. At least one member has quit because of it.
My view is if two members meet at dinner, like each other and decide to spend more time together....cool. But this is not a dating group. This group is about enjoying great sushi with great people. If you are just looking for dates, there are plenty of other groups which are specifically geared for that.
So, if you are one of the offenders, please refrain from this practice in the future. Thank you. Hope you all have a great weekend.
