Meetup.com #resist groups are divisive and the site is pushing a political agenda
Meetup.com has recently set up site and country-wide meetup groups encouraging social resistance 'for democracy'.The groups are called "#resist".
These groups are free and sponsored by the Meetup Community HQ (i.e., 'the board'). They flooded members' feeds the other day with political propaganda encouraging people to join these groups due to "concern over where the government is headed". The original banner, which is now gone, also referenced the current election outcome as a key motivator to organizing these groups. Unlike facebook, you cannot block these banners or these groups from showing up in your feed, and unlike facebook, group organizers are charged a fee for this site.
This is absolute political propaganda and pushing a political agenda on a site which is supposed to promote diverse interests of many groups.
I asked them to similarly sponsor groups for unification, but they have not replied yet.I will "#resist" Meetup.com and move my group to Facebook if this propaganda and agenda pushing continues....I cannot support any site that promotes social disharmony or discord through resistance movements!
Reason of review: Pushing a political agenda on a site which is supposed to promote diverse interests.
Preferred solution: Meetup.com should similarly sponsor groups for unity and advertise them as they have the ones for resistance, or remove the political undertones entirely by removing the #resist groups.
I didn't like: Promoting social disharmony via resist groups is very divisive.
