Special promotions from the Administrators' partners

Given the last response from the Administrator in the recently closed thread on BF initiated spam Bf spam -

What is the purpose of offering in User Control Panel/Messaging & Notification the option of disallowing email receipt of Administrator newsletters and special promotions from the Administrators' partners?

Has the decision been made to raise money by sending email "advertisements", i.e. spam, regardless of what is checked in the appropriate option box, even for the BF members who have paid to receive no ads?

Hi,

The paid ads-free memberships are for the forums. That deal never extended to emails.

Regretfully the opt-out selector in the user profile has never functioned, to my knowledge.

But you can opt out of email ads very easily by using the unsubscribe link in the email itself. This is very standard for email advertising.

Best,

Admin

Why not make the opt-out selector in the user profile functional?

Isn't it standard to either fix or remove broken code?

We'll do our best but to my knowledge this is not fixable.

At the very least the ads could be vetted before they are sent. Works for me. OTOH, I don't think I ever saw it or if I have simply unsubscribed from them some rime ago.

Dr. Gundry should be investigated by the Psychic Friends Network. Then again, didn't they already see it coming?

Nobody knows what any of those ads is about. Someday college kids led by an evil professor with a goatee will find the Dr. mummified in a pyramid, and of course they will all die horribly one by one (and in black and white).
