Re: [nycpython] Gilt Groupe "Exotic Programming Languages and the Web" Event

hey guys, let's not get to so worked up over this.

1. An unwanted post is followed up by Gloria's "that's against our 
policy" email. In other words, you've received not just one, but two 
pieces of useless email. (in some cases more if the original poster 
pushes back)

2. There is no way of filtering out unwanted posts before they hit the 
mailing list without a moderation system. I do not know what sorts of 
moderation features Meetup provides, but we probably want to take up the 
least amount of Gloria's time as possible. (is there something that 
requires an extra confirmation for the first time a user posts to the 
list, in which case we send along the policy then?)

The point is, some people will want non-Python content, some want only 
Python content, hell some even want recruiter email. *But it doesn't 
matter because the violators aren't even reading the existing policy in 
the first place!* I'd bet a beer that any change we make to the existing 
policy will not substantially affect the amount of unwanted email in our 
inboxes.


Wes
