Can someone please explain why I received this spam in my email today? In my option settings, I have clearly specified that I do NOT wish to receive any email but I still received this garbage.

Thanks,
Graeme

Hmmm... we need a bit more info. Which email system? What settings ? Did you really tell it to not allow ANY email (as your post implies.) Can you copy the full message header into your next post?

If you are still receiving non-spam emails, then the simple answer is that it fooled your email provider into thinking it wasn't spam.

Pete,

I am referring to the options section (Messaging and Notification) of the User Control Panel on this forum. Here is a copy of the section in question.

From time to time, the administrators may want to send you email notices.

If you do not want to receive these notices, disable this option. Receive Email from Administrators
If you do not want to receive an email for each request of friendship, you may disable this option. Receive Friendship Request Email
And yes, I did deselect/disable both these options prior to the spam.

-Graeme

Here is a copy of the email for reference. Unfortunately, I am having trouble printing the header but the content seems to come from mylargescale.

My old mailbox is too full for such nonsense so I opted out.


You will need to find an Admin post and ask them, it's a rotating responsibility it seems, you never know who will sign your answer...

If you do not want to receive an email for each request of friendship, you may disable this option. Receive Friendship Request Email
And yes, I did deselect/disable both these options prior to the spam.

Aha, the Threadloom emails mentioned elsewhere. [Sorry - I haven't received one.]

Simple answer - that isn't an "email from an Administrator". It's advertising from your favorite website, MLS, who have a service (Threadloom) trying to drum up more business. So yes, it is spam, but disabling email on MLS isn't going to stop them.

You can see that in the header: From: "MyLargeScale.com" <[email protected]> So while it seems to be from MLS, it is actually from a totally different website.

Incidentally, in my experience, most marketing operations ignore the legal requirements to observe "opt-out" requests. Beacuse there are no penalties - they are never prosecuted for not doing what they promised.
Classic example was the old LSOL, who signed people up and promised never to sell their emails to spammers. Then they killed the site and a few weeks later we found them advertising that the email list could be bought!!

As far as I know, the only recourse is the EFF: https://www.eff.org/

Thank you, Pete and John.


Unfortunately for MLS and their minions, I have zero patience for spamming and those who engage in it. If they are attempting to drum up business, they are barking up the wrong tree with me since I will never purchase any product or service advertised by spamming.


In fact, I may look into discontinuing my membership if this is the way they are going to behave.

Do as you will. I haven't gotten another since I opted out.

We are speculating about an inconvenience.
Be Blessed

Actually, this isn't spam. You are a member of a website, you willingly gave them your email address, and I'll bet the small print in the "user agreement" [which you never read and probably never saw] gives them the right to send you anything they think you might want to see.


If they are at all honest they will honor the "unsubscribe" or "opt-out", and Totalwrecker reports that they do seem to do so. So there's your answer.
