Jesus Christ what did you do to the layout? Also, can I opt out of this spam?
first off, the color scheme was changed so as to prevent this site from looking exactly like every other SMF board out there. seems like a pretty good move, imo.
secondly, i get the impression you are not entirely familiar with the premise behind spam. spamming is when a company
with whom you have NO PREVIOUS AFFILIATION
contacts you, without solicitation, attempting to use your email inbox for the purpose of advertising to you
allow me to outline how our relationship with you differs from that of a spammer. first of all, we are not a business and do not exist for the purpose of taking your money. also, you have a previously existing affiliation with this website, not the least of which was your voluntary decision to register using your email address.
and all of this aside, the short email you refer to is hardly what i would call invasive. it's sent out automatically 21 days after no account activity, and a final email is sent after i think 40 days. is this REALLY so bothersome as to motivate a thread in which the whole thing is opened up for public complaint?
i have never understood the hypersensitivity people have with regard to receiving an email.
