I know that because I send group rules through my online groups and even have them at the bottom of each email that is sent and STILL members of my group DO NOT read them.
I listen to OTHER group owners complain about this problem in their own groups too. I WAS in an online sharing group and received a message from the owner (it was sent through the group so all could read it) about how she was fed up with trying to be nice to all her members and how NONE of them wanted to share. I understood completely where she was coming from so I decided to reply to that email and let her know I felt exactly the same way and even described the stuff MY members would do like share the stuff I shared in other groups but wouldn’t share in mine. And I get this reply back from her:
its funny how u say this and its funny how ppl complaining they can not send til Saturday guess what u fools knew this when you signed up i am not changing my rules
So, I’m reading this reply back I got and thinking to myself. WTH? So, I decided the best thing to do was to un-subcribe from her group because if trying to be nice to someone gets me this kind of reply then I don’t know what to say to people anymore, lol.
And the funny thing is, is that I had just sent some stuff through her group right before I replied to that email she sent. So I WAS sharing in her group and I am a bit confused as to WHY someone would send a reply like that to someone who just shared some stuff.
Anyway, I’m not going to let that worry me. Lord knows I have enough problems in my OWN groups so I don’t need to listen to anyone else’s at the moment, lol.
I hope you all stay safe, healthy and happy. Hugs,
