I just saw the note from Andrew Jorgensen, I feel bad, I was only trying to get the word about upcoming events so we can get openSUSE members to go out and support them, he is calling for people to leave the facebook page.
Please don't feel bad because one community member had a negative knee-jerk reaction. His note is inappropriate and he should have contacted you directly and raised his complaint privately rather than being destructive publicly. Being "open" doesn't necessarily mean that grievances need to be aired in that manner.
So - future note, just space out event announcements a bit. Problem solved.
I think you're doing a great job putting up events and really appreciate someone taking initiative. If there's room for improvement, it's only because you're *doing something* and that leaves room to improve what you're *doing* -- doing *nothing* draws no complaints because there's nothing to complain about.
Again, I wasn't trying to spam people, I just want to get the events out there so our members know them.
And I -- and I'm sure the majority of people in the community -- deeply appreciate it.
