Well, for one, you could heed the wishes of the admin and not add to the noise by creating a thread about it. She has asked that we flag them to her and not start threads that simply add to the problem.

We all get them. Imagine if everyone one of us created a new thread every time we got one.

Yeah, I got one of those 16 gazillion plan emails today. Like Tony says, delete it and move on. Life is to short to sweat the little things!

It is amazing that people get worked up so much about little things. There are too many real things to worry about.

Delete it and move on!

That’s for the advice all, well not really.

I have to deal with about 50-60 spam emails a day, I unsubscribe from all sorts of things constantly, it is not just seconds. This is one of the few places I’d like to stay a member. I went about 8 years with ZERO spam from Lumberjocks. I have not seen any admin request to flag them, and there is no apparent place to do so, the emails specifically state NOT to reply. My notifications only allow stuff from members interaction. I may need to say goodbye, barring a solution.

1. Turn off all notifications.
2. Send private message to Cricket about spam in messages with guilty user name.
3. U got such response because the threads like this is popping out weekly…

Goodbye to you, no loss here. Or delete the garbage and move on. Like others have told you, life is way too short. If you get that many junk messages, maybe it is a personal problem. Maybe delete your email account and start with a new one.

OP…..
Cutting off the nose to spite the face never works.

“Cutting off the nose to spite the face” is an expression to describe a needlessly self-destructive over-reaction to a problem: “Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face” is a warning against acting out of pique, or against pursuing revenge in a way that would damage oneself more than the object of one’s anger.

Apparently some of them are a LOT worse than the ones that I get. They seem to be quite life altering actually and can cause you to throw tantrums and stomp around like a spoiled 8 year old.

Turn off notifications and change your email address to a non-functioning address. This isn’t rocket science.
