Ignore them. Cheers.
but I'll stop now.
not this crummy thread
How DARE you.
I got 42
unless maybe the others got spamblocked
But at least I used the word BALLBAG
Could do with getting that fixed.
I think Seas should send an e-mail addressing this
yes, that sounds like a great idea
Wow, the wonders of modern technology will never cease to amaze.
and put URGENT after it
the is a function to send an e-mail to all users on the mailing list
Are you a moderator?
Is everyone a fucking moderator but me?
Every knows how anti-authority you are!
so wouldn't know if I have any of those emails.
He had a thing about you (*shudder*)
CG said he sent a lot of vile things to him about me but wouldn't say what :s
the Troll, I mean :)
Great deletion there.
(let's not make out, though).
In fact, i don't even get the dis mail-out anymore! And now i remember the email linked to my account has been dead for about 2 years.
We don't do a mailout any more. We felt the click throughs were so small that it was better to do it sparingly, rather than regularly. Especially because 1) it costs a fair bit to do a mailout 2) whenever we do one, I get blocked from emailing various people from any @drownedinsound address for quite some time - which is annoying. 3) sometimes when we send a mailout it it slows the site down.
My second point still stands though. I'm pretty sure I'm linked to an email account that I no longer have access to. Brilliant.
and it's the only interaction that I've had with the russian troll, I was beginning to wonder whether he was made up.
you've got to have a system.
It would mean that all emails from @drownedinsound don't get classed as spam. Most of the emails I sent this week have ended up in people's spam folders.
If you could whitelist them it would be a big help.
But is Russian Troll also Evol rebel, and also Hollywood freak/_james?
I don't think it was james_, but some people do. There are a few competing candidates/theories:
c) actual person from Russia
d) Irish Troll
for me, it's probably c).
Surprised how few people ever mention this.
I got 289 new emails today. 289! Someone is determined.
But if an overall DiS announcement is to be made 'sticky' about this subject, something other than a weary/smug instruction by said person taking that responsibility might be required?
Those users who experienced this (albeit only slighty) annoying happenstance might appreciate it.
With a thank you.
Is not smug and weary, surely?
Smug would be, "I just ignore them."
when the blue dot reappears next to sticky threads despite there being no new posts.
that's quite annoying.
