I got it too, but also deleted it. However, I didn't see anything suspicious about it. Other forums that I'm on send me the same type of thing.

I have received it twice and unsubscribed both times, on the forum daily so I don't need reminders.

I gather it is a new thing. Done as a service to alert members to some recent interesting posts. It is not spam, but by all means unsubscribe if it annoys. I was a bit surprised by it myself. Emanated from higher up, I gather.

Yes. I got it too. You're worried about the sender? Then forward them to a Trawler Forum moderator and see what he has to say about them.

Greetings,
I only received that notice once but it was a bit different. Something about living only 5 miles away and getting together for some sort of party. Said her name was Trixie...





I saved it. I thought it might be something important from TF.

Social Knowledge LLC, looks like a company that owns/operates a lot of forums including this one.

Forums with a lot of traffic like this one usually get bought out by conglomerates like that. All those little adds at the top, or the side... that's why. I know of at least three people that started forums and once they got to a certain point of regular traffic, they made big money by selling the forums to agencies like Social Knowledge.

Unfortunately, if you're that concerned about your email address being shared, the only way to prevent it is to never type it on a screen and hit the enter key. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter, but all that does is stops it from coming to your email box. Unfortunately you agreed to the terms and conditions of the forum when you registered and signed up, and they're going to milk it for every advertising dollar they can get.

When you unsubscribe from unknown emails as such all it dose is confirms your email address is both active and real so now expect to receive even more spam

Although I did recently delete all of my other social media accounts and that's been tremendously helpful in increasing my day to day happiness!
