I don't want to filter things because the filter will then work against me when I want to receive real mailing list emails (which is things about meetups and the community in general). My question was very reasonable:
"Can you move the discussion to the message board, which is the whole point of having a message board"
Last time I heard emo drama like this to the public was in high school, I don't wanna hear it on a mailing list that I wish to receive emails and _general_ furlife discussion/response/feedback.
All I'm saying is, which is a valid point, you have a message board built into meetup.com for things like this, please use it.
