On Sunday January 5, 2014 emails started flying on the site from various members to everyone on the site, and I didn't find out that this was happening till the evening.
Please know I took absolutely no offense to peoples various opinions that came out. So no worries.
I have to say though, I was truly honored by how many stood up for me, thinking I must feel bad and sincerely appeared to feel bad for me.
I sent out a general email to remind people that the site I run is not a professional company, it is one done for fun by little ol me.
All websites on Meet Up are rented by people, both the general public and businesses. The people that rent the sites are allowed to run the site as they want to.
The Meet Up site was originally created in New York after 9/11 in the states to allow people to connect and work together. In short, it brought people together.
I find some people want to tell me how to run the site, and I was clarifying that I plan to keep running Out & About as I have been. I have no wish to be stifled.
Many think I “work” for the company that runs Out & About, and they didn't realize I WAS the person writing the content and approving what was being viewed, and I AM the person setting the rules for the group.
They saw me as simply someone that was there and came out to the meet up. I personally see that as the sincerest form of compliment on the work I have been doing for the group.
If you do not want emails coming to you, I went on to say, you can adjust your profile so you don't get the emails.
To adjust your email status, go to your profile.
My goal for this group is for human connections to be made, working together harmoniously, and to help enhance people's lives. I believe in turn that should help make this a better world. Here's looking forward to another great year in 2014.
