Hi - I should have made this announcement earlier to avoid confusion.
MPA IS sending some emails.
Existing members may get around ONE email per MONTH with a commercial link in it to a product. We try to ensure that you don't get more than one. We decided to do this in the hope of defraying some of the site running costs. While I'd love it for you to stay on the list, you can unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link in the email. This will not affect your participation or access to MPA. If you are getting more than one per month, please let me know, because you shouldn't be and I will investigate. I hate spam as much as the next person.
New members will get a series of NON-commercial emails (diet tips etc) for the first month. This is done to ensure the email address on file stays valid. We have issues with spammers registering a temporary email address. By sending a series of emails, we make sure the email address stays valid for 30 days, and if not, we can clear out the temporary/spam members. These emails are not commercial and do not contain any links.
EDIT: I've decided to kill those emails. Sorry for the inconvenience. See my post below. We'll replace it with something else.
I hope that explains it. Sorry for not explaining this before.
