Back in February, E.—a friend in Rodez—put up an event on OVS to grab drinks at a bar in town on Saturday night. In the name of the event, he included "<40," to limit attendees to those under 40 years of age.
Now, if I had made the event, I wouldn't have ever put that because a) it's not inclusive and b) I have lots of older friends, and appreciate the fresh perspective that people not my age—both older and younger—can offer.
But alas, Damien and I wanted to meet people our age as well, so we signed up to attend without second thought.
A day after the event had been posted, a user (age 60) RSVPd as attending, and then commented something like: "I see the age limit, but I'd still like to come. Is that okay?"
