Hi friends! I just wanted to go over some things for the comfort of everyone involved.
Please do not use the MeetUp messenger to message people you have never met.
If someone is messaging you OR texting you and you feel uncomfortable, or creepy, and you have already told them to stop and they haven't: PLEASE let me know ASAP. I will deal with it confidentially without saying names.
I want everyone to feel comfortable and safe. Also, we are all grownups here and should be able to avoid drama by speaking up calmly and assertively.
