(asking because initially i had everything at default, hadn't even occured to me that along with the change settings would be reverted; mail from administrators for example was 'on', along with everything else. Even so, i seem to have escaped this somehow)

LOL, I just heard about this today, found the emails in my spam folder(I rarely even ck it) here's what I had enabled.Receive Email from Administrators

I agree with the sentiment!

You have to admit,the actual mail is in fitting company for Vertical Scope mail...

example = "Say Goodbye to Sleepless Nights!" "Re: Hello My Good friend..." "Trending post From Overclock.net!" "Burn Fat And Loose Weight!" "96% Of HERPES Sufferers NEVER get another outbreak after doing THIS" "Trending Post from Overclock.net!"

Which 1 was I supposed to save????????????? They ALL seem so,so, EXCLAMATORY!!!!!!!

I believe that unwanted emails should be reported to spam blocker/providers so that they are blocked on a global level. Thousands and thousands of these and, well, perhaps their emails/system will stop working altogether. Why should we wait for them to fix it when we can force them to address the issue because they are now globally blacklisted and not a *single* email will go through now?

Just my 2c.

It just so happens my buddy is senior engineer at a global company who oversees lists like this ... Should we be considering the nuclear option until it’s fixed? Hehe

A check of the header in the latest spam from threadloom.news reveals the IP address of the offending mail server is registered to sendgrid.net, another spammer.

Fortunately, since I am responsible for the mail server that receives my email, threadloom.news has new been added to sendmail’s access.db so threadloom.news sourced email no longer even reaches the server. No backscatter, no email.

The number of users that use this mail server is small by some standards so it is very easy to block offending spam sites right at the front door and wait for complaints from the users to see if it needs to be opened up. In this case I do not think I have to worry.

Gmail might automatically send emails to spam after you click the unsubscribe link in them.

That's how I read that as well, and how I've interpreted a lot of the GDPR stuff so far. It seems they're willing to do what I assume is a lot more work just to treat EU vs non-EU users differently instead of simply applying the same standards to everyone. As if we really needed more evidence of how despicable these companies are.

This was my exact thought. Everyone should simply set up a filter in their email to automatically forward these to [email protected] and they can also report it to SpamCop. The FTC and ISPs will be inundated with reports and will be forced to take action against these corporations/people that have zero respect for us.

By the way, I've also been getting these from at least one other forum (AVSForum). Completely unacceptable.

You probably know this already, but AVSForum is another VerticalScope property. If you look at what happened to their content and their traffic when they got acquired, you can get a good idea of what the future holds in store for us here at OCN.

I cannot speak for AVS but our poor migration aside, we will be doing the opposite of AVS. While VS owns certain properties this does not bare reflection on how the communities are managed internally which has the greatest affect on community success, I have seen it over and over again.

Is anyone else still getting these? I noticed that I started getting them on 27/02/2019 (AEDT). I got my third one today.
