Japanese Meetup - Rules of Conduct

From: David H.
Sent on: Wednesday, March 11, 2009 1:10 AM
To All Members of the Japanese Meetup Group,

** Note: The Japanese translation of this message can be found here **

There have been some incidents in recent months, such as aggressive pick up attempts, which have caused a couple of members in our group to feel very uncomfortable. This has been slowly and steadily draining away the health of the group. Needless to say, the organizers of this group consider this behavior unacceptable.

There is a lot of personal time and effort being put in to flourish our community. Our goal is to provide a safe, social environment with a lot of great events, to give everyone interested in Japanese culture a chance to come together and enjoy each other's company. Overall, I'm very proud to be part of a group that is full of dependable, friendly, and genuine people. To keep this positive dynamic, we all need to be aware of how we treat one another, both at our events and outside of them as well.

So, in short, please use your head. We're a social meetup, not a dating meetup. If someone abuses the privileges of our group, they will be removed.

And, on the other hand, if you are made to feel uncomfortable in any way, please contact any of the organizers of this group - we are listening.

Thanks for reading and understanding,
