Yes. Right now you are saying: Wow. There are sooooooo many!

Truly all guidelines have to do with respect for the membership and to minimize exploitation of the members and the group.

You are also saying: Wow. These are harsh!!

This group has an open and inviting door. These rules are given to all upon entering. If you violate these it's a little like walking into a house and then laying s steaming turd for all the other guests to look at, and smell and even watch you do it.

The Admin will pick up any turds and remove the bare ass laying it. Yes, it may feel harsh to you but it is protecting the other guests and members.

We are all adults here. So if you did not read this and administrative action gets applied to you, . . . that's on you. Ya can't blame others for your own actions and consequences. After all is said and done: There are plenty of other groups on meetup.

Now that the boring ADMIN info is posted above . . . here is more about the group

The mission of this group is its name.

"I Just Moved To London" aims to be positive and safe environment for members to experience things that, for whatever reasons, you longed for but weren't able to do before. Everyone is welcome.

London is vibrant and diverse city. We have the opportunity to explore it and make new friends while doing so. Meetup is one of the few (maybe only) websites dedicated to having it's participants get offline and do things in reality.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME INTO THE GROUP!
