Mass e-mail from a user of this forum!

Post by Bieneke » Sun Dec 02, 2007 5:00 pm

Hello all,

Yesterday, we all received two messages from a member called Marcel1983.  I apologize if this has lead to some concern over your privacy.

First of all, unless you post your e-mail address explicitly on this forum, your e-mail address will not be made public to anyone. Also not to members who send mass e-mails from the forum. So if you received this message yesterday, you do not have to worry about your e-mail address being exposed to total strangers.

Marcel 1983 used a forum function, which is normally only available to adminstrators and moderators. Somehow, members can now check the option to send a notification of a post to all forum members. It is not easy to find this option and I am not going to explain how to find it here before I fixed this little bug. ;-)
