    Junk mail from RC

    I was wondering if anyone else on here who is also at RC is receiving junk mail from them lately asking for money for various things and causes? I have only ever visited their site perhaps a 1/2 dozen times and now I am getting unwanted mail from them. I'm really not impressed.

    I'm getting nothing. Are you sure it is from RC? Maybe some outside group has appropriated your e-mail address from the RC membership directory?

    that's one of the ones I get. I don't really read them just trash them. I do not like receiving surprise mail. it's like when the phone rings for someone who actually wants to buy something from the caller.

    well I don't see a way to delete my membership and that in it's self may not stop the mail so i changed my e-mail setting to a hot mail account that only accepts mail from people on the list.

    The last one was stop cyanide fishing by raising money to buy nets...

    In your options for RC, there is a box to check or uncheck that "allow bulletin board administrators or moderators to send you email notices?" Just check the no box and you won't get any "junk mail"

    Even AC has the same question. Since the default is "yes" that means you gave them permission to send you those emails when you signed up.
