Why am I suddenly receiving email from GT featuring topics I have no interest in?? I love this site... but PLEASE let me come to you and cease and desist with the unsolicited email spam. Thanks... Love Wayne.

Wayne ,
Seems this has happened to some other members too since the new change am few weeks back . Even I get emails regarding the " drum forum " . As Synchro stated ... just un-subscribe and you should be ok

I've been noticing those too. The last batch I got however, at least were correctly labeled as being from Gretsch-Talk and not Drum Forum. So ... that's progress, I guess?!

They also weren't technically spam in that they weren't advertising vacumm cleaners or something. Instead, they were a summary of the site's latest posts, more a newsletter than spam.

Personally, I think they're a waste of time. If I want the latest posts, I visit the site! Why would I need an email about it?

But I get similar emails from several other sites. Seems to be the latest fad in marketing right now. Some idiot's idea of a good idea!

Have you changed your notification preferences under your profile?
Some came checked in the new software client: Uncheck them.

Filter in your email client.
Create a rule, moving that sort of content into spam.

I get the ones mentioned here (drum forum which changed to G-T). Also get the same from TGP. I just delete them. Not spam to me, but someone’s thinking that this would be interesting to me!?
