Just sent this to the original managers
Will update here on progress

Hi guys

I'm writing about the CloudStack  Users group on linkedin.
I understand that you guys, along with Scott Lindars and Alicia Rey are the Managers of this
list  (Shannon, I think you're the actual owner)

We've just had a discussion on the Apache @marketing list and noticed recently that this community
had become overrun with recruiters, weight loss adverts, etc and runs the risk of becoming
a negative advertisement for the technology

This looks really bad (the group is still number 3 if you google "cloudstack user group" )
: it creates a pretty poor impression to the outside world.

Are you able to either arrange somebody to regularly moderate it or allow some of the ASF
members to also become moderators. I know the ASF PMC don't see this linkedin group as an
official group (and I guess it dates from days) , but somebody needs to get hold
of it IMO.

I'm happy to help as is Antone Heywood and Kim White from Netapp

Let me know your thoughts

Kind Regards

Just to be clear, it's up to the managers of the group - not me. :-)
