SPAM by the internet's definition is high volume emails sent to unknown recipients for a return on something of value. This return could be clicks, money, just about anything you can imagine. Now.. my take. Any email that comes to you after you have asked them to not send it again. I absolutely hate getting email from folks only to see that I am just a number on a long list of folks who get copied every time they run across a good joke or chain letter. I get this a lot and I usually do not complain.. I just usually delete them and move on but technically, if I ask you to not send me anything else, you should say "ok, I am sorry I offended you, it will not happen again". You should NOT argue about whether is is actually spam or try to talk the person into liking it. When given the choice, always choose the harder right rather than the easier wrong. It is easy to get offended and start making excuses for what you did and why and.. It would all be over in seconds if you just did the right thing.. quickly apologize and promise to not do it again. End of story. I have not gotten to the bottom of the recent ordeal here at the forum, but let me say that if I find out that anyone on this forum has asked you to not send them electronic messages whether that is PM's or Emails and you do not do so promptly and without causing a stink, I will remove the privilege of using this forum from you. Do I have the right to do that? Yes I do because it reflects poorly on this forum and on me as the owner, especially if you are an OTBS member. We do not need a long discussion about this issue and I am not going to get into it with you if you disagree with my take on spam. I Just have to make it known that this is NOT acceptable behavior from anyone on the SMF. I do NOT want to lose good members just because someone does not respect another member enough to give them exactly what they ask when it comes to electronic communication. Now will someone please explain to me why I feel the need to explain this to grown adults?
