Meetup.com Software Gone Wild

Do you belong to Meetup.com?

Are you receiving the same email message over and over? The same message has been sent every minute for 4 hours. I can’t delete them fast enough. Other members are experiencing the same thing. By morning, I’m sure some of them…or all of us…will have our email accounts shut down. HELP!

Is there a way to contact them NOW to get it fixed or shut down their site. It’s happened in other cities…I don’t know if they are getting 4 hours worth, but 30 or 40 of the same message.

Is there some law that states that they should have some type of emergency procedure? There should be.

If you know someone who works there… CALL THEM NOW, please! Tell them to check THEIR email and organizer boards for details.

Sky High Travel Prices Rising

Dear Airlines:

I understand why you have to raise the price of tickets and start charging for luggage in an attempt to keep abreast of increasing fuel costs. But here’s what I would like to know: Are you still going to give away all those freebie flights for your employees’ family members?

Instead of passing along all of your higher costs to your paying customers, why don’t you stop letting employee’s parents, etc. fly standby for free? Let them pay for their flights. That will bring in some needed revenue.

Southwest Airlines still has discounts for senior travelers. Age doesn’t accurately reflect whether or not your pocketbook can afford to pay a full fare or not.

The other day I was listening to a couple of women talk about the high cost of maintaining a second home. Snowbirds. I had no sympathy for them. They should just be glad they can afford the option of a second home in their senior years.

There are many families who can’t afford gas to get to work and milk for their kids. These are the low level hourly workers who make it possible for the fat cats at the top to enjoy their vacation homes and other luxuries.

This country is an economic mess right now. How much worse will it get?
