Do you think it's fair for group admins to deny you just because you're a new member?

I was denied membership to a group here solely based off the fact I'm a new member. They've had 'problems with fake profiles' and didn't give me the benefit of the doubt.

  • Hasn't anyone heard of giving someone a chance? Don't assume all new members are just 'fake' profiles; there are REAL new moms here, too.

  • I had the same thing happen to me. Another group that I joined was advertising a group that was even more what I was looking for. I was new and trying to find groups with similar interests. I was shocked when my application was refused and I was told to try in another month. Of course there is no way that I would after that. But meanwhile I have found groups that suit me just fine.

  • I think its fair. Every group has rules for whatever the reason. Just because youre a member of cafemom doesnt automatically mean you get to join any group you want to. For instance lets say theres a step mom group and they want just step moms and a non step mom joins and her profile shows she is a step mom opponent (dont know if that exists just saying lol) does that mean they have to let her in>?
