If Leave the ACM, Some of Their e-Mail Becomes SPAM

Really, people. If I tell my rep that I will not be renewing, most renew-now messages stop. This is not the case with with the list servers. The ACM Bulletin, TechNews, and whatever else you may be subscribed to will continue on their merry way.

At a certain point, this becomes spam. If, after all, I regarded those lists as being extremely valuable, I would likely never have left ACM in the first place.

Just saying.

There's a lot going on right now. which is how it comes to be that my first post of the month is on the 24th. Over a month since my last post. So I have to regard ACM mail as something that should have vanished at the end of last month. Just random stuff that I have to send unsubscribe messages to.

Thanks for your comment; communities are not built without you.

But note than comments on older posts usually go into a modertion queue. It keeps out a lot of blog spam. Weird links to Web sites hosting malware, marketing nonsense, etc.

I really want to be quick about approving comments in the moderation queue. When I think I won't manage that, I will turn moderation off, and sweep up the mess as soon as possible.

If you find comments that look like blog spam, they likely are. As always, be careful of what you click on. I may have had moderation off, and not yet swept up the mess.
