Sounds like you should just unsubscribe and head off to the UBNT forums! On Tue, Feb 13, 2018 at 1:48 PM, Jeff Broadwick - Lists <jeffl...@att.net> wrote: Why, thank you Jay!

Participating on the list isn't quite the same as inboxing me directly with a canned message. > I used to do it every Friday right here on this list. Your list, your rules. I still don't think it's cool to send out unsolicited commercial messages without an opt-in. Furthermore industry best practices include using a double opt-in. Mailchimp support double opt-in: https://kb.mailchimp.com/lists/signup-forms/about-double-opt-in In summary: I did not know that by joining the Af list I would, unbeknownst to me and surreptitiously, be signed up for another direct email list.
