    - why have i only just started getting daily news? ive never had it before this last few days.
    i never subscribed to any newsletters in the past. and certainly havent subscribed to any recently because i havent even been on this site for months.

    I agree. I've gotten a few "eNews" mailings in the past, but now it's becoming intrusive.

    Does anyone know why there has been such a recent flurry?

    The "unsubscribe" page linked in the email is not informative ... cheers, drl

    Hi, spongefinger

    Just wanted to let you know that I've posted about your question in the administrator's forum, so hopefully someone that knows the details about this will respond soon.

    thanks for that ozar.

    its probably me just being paranoid, but i do have fears that clicking unsubscribe is going to give the go ahead to a spam bot to start mailing my address with phallic enlargement and cheap watch adverts. lol

    It is legit to unsubscribe, it's definitely not spam (eg. you won't get spammed more if you unsubscribe... you'll be removed).

    ok, thankyou Matthew.

    any reason as to why ive suddenly started getting them recently when ive never received them before?

    I believe they just started. I'll try to get some clarification and get back to you.
