Topic tags/keywords: question

I am getting advertising BS in my Lumberjocks notifications. I have long ago adjusted my preferences to ONLY receive notice about Lumberjock projects etc. I get enough crap email already. What can be done about those advertisers abusing Lumberjocks?

I can’t be the only one experiencing this, can I?

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…

3,500 days, 39 posts (10% of which are complaints at this point) and no basic knowledge of the forum. Yeah, bye.

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.
