View Full Version : E-mail workshop ad spam from CA
November 6th, 2011, 01:29 PM
7 so far. 5 within the duration of 1 hour.
I case you guys have a new guy working on this then please tell him that this is meant as a complaint and that the phrase "There is no such thing as bad publicity" is a lie.

Wasn’t interested with the first time. Definitely not interested the 7th.
November 6th, 2011, 02:42 PM
How do I unsubscribe? It's incredibly annoying.
November 6th, 2011, 08:30 PM
Seriously. 6 in as many hours.

The spam is getting really annoying. Don't know what the problem with your mail server is, but I would have someone take a look. I changed email addresses and opted out of all communications and I'm still getting this crap.
November 7th, 2011, 02:37 AM
I've had 15... count 'em... 15 emails about the lastest TAD class in my inbox in the past 24 hours!!!
ENOUGH already! - this is now just blatent spamming....
November 7th, 2011, 12:03 PM
Please give us an update on what is being done to correct this.
I also received 2 emails from TAD on this a couple days before the mass spamming.
November 7th, 2011, 12:05 PM
Here too, a dozen between yesterday morning and now, about every two hours. I'm routing conceptart.org to spam for now.

Haven't a clue. I got 4. It happens infrequently.
November 7th, 2011, 03:50 PM
I've gotten 6 today... what's the deal?
November 7th, 2011, 07:53 PM
I'm getting a bunch as well...
November 7th, 2011, 11:05 PM
Mark Tarrisse, Grondhammar and SeanE,
I am sorry for the spam, this was a technical issue and was not meant to be spam!
Please except my apology.
November 7th, 2011, 11:40 PM
got 6, but I don't really mind since gmail has them nicely grouped together in 1
November 8th, 2011, 12:03 AM
No problem John, thanks for stopping by. I once sent 14,000 copies of the same email to one person, so I know the feeling. Ah, technology... :)
November 8th, 2011, 09:36 AM
So I am not the only one....
November 8th, 2011, 11:21 AM
Yes I've also had them but I've not had any notifications today or yesterday of new posts in my 'subscribed to threads' so I'm guessing someone is doing some system changes.
November 8th, 2011, 02:41 PM
Appearently it's not fixed yet, as I am being spammed still!! I am now getting emails every 5 minutes!!
Can't you just stop the whole thing until you've found a solution!!
This is getting out of hand!
November 8th, 2011, 03:30 PM
The people who got a FREE TAD membership for
the illustration ACADEMY got these
e-mails. I got them too.
Jon Foster, Sterling Hundley, Ron Lemen, Jason Manley, Francis Vallejo
has chosen us cause we are special. Don't you see it?
We are a special group of people with high talents.
They also invited me to the after party, and some
hard core drinking. Looking forth to it.
Oh, I am so excited now.
I have never been so happy in my life!
Francis, Sterling, here I come!

I understand that Tad generates revenue for you, but one email a day regarding tad is enough.
I got 5 emails in one day with the same tad message. there is no need to keep spamming me.
i got one at 10:26 am
I got another at 11:37 am
I got another at 11:58 am
I got another at 12:04 pm
I got another at 12:13 pm
This is not the first time this has happened. enough is enough
November 8th, 2011, 05:43 PM
Merged the 3 threads. Enough is enough.
November 9th, 2011, 02:09 AM
Ok, I've received the email about the upcoming TAD workshop ELEVEN times. That is just more spam than I think is necessary or appropriate. Cool it, guys!
November 9th, 2011, 03:56 AM
I was about to post the same thing.. Its annoying and, to be honest, it gets me less and less interested.
November 9th, 2011, 04:19 AM
Me too. I'm pretty sure it wasn't intentional. :thinking:
November 9th, 2011, 04:58 AM
Damn, and I thought my 6 were over the line...
Seriously though, enough of the spam milk shake guys..
November 9th, 2011, 06:38 AM
Mann I only got 8!
I didn't actually see them at first, I just found they have started automatically going into spam. You'd think that for all the adverts we see each day at the top for it we would know about these things anyway.
November 9th, 2011, 07:12 AM
I agree. I hope it's not intentional.
November 9th, 2011, 10:27 AM
If only someone could have merged the e-mails, too ... sigh. ;)
November 9th, 2011, 10:36 AM
that's weird. I only received one.
November 9th, 2011, 10:49 AM
getting spammed by this site
one day i got 20+ emails from conceptart.org
asked to delete my account - nope
unsubscribe me - nope
i sent 5 emails not one response
not including an unsubscribe link in an email is illegal part of the CAN SPAM ACT 2003

It was likely a glitch or server error. You have to realize how huge the list is of members that are on these forums. It may have hiccuped partway through the process or someone hit the submit process repeatedly thinking it wasn't running at the time. I'm quite sure it's not intentional.
November 9th, 2011, 11:00 AM
Sorry... I wasn't getting the spam and assumed incorrectly you were referring to something else.
November 9th, 2011, 11:06 AM
I got only one too. I guess your emails are so artistically sexy that they attract more art school mail.
November 9th, 2011, 11:45 AM
I only got two...
Looks like a server hiccup, I'm sure it wasn't intentional.
November 9th, 2011, 12:33 PM
I'm not complaining, CA lets me broadcast my pics in mega-widescreen-spectacle-panovision-technicolorama to the whole world for FREE :)...
...er....maybe I should sign up for TAD...
November 9th, 2011, 12:36 PM
I just figured it was an accident not worth mentioning unless it happened again.
November 9th, 2011, 01:14 PM
Yeah me too, I got 7, but I'm used to getting about 1 every other day or so to my spam email address anyway.
November 9th, 2011, 02:26 PM

You have to realize how huge the list is of members that are on these forums.
I'm working on that. :lounge:
November 9th, 2011, 03:10 PM
I'm still receiving them as of this morning (Wednesday).
November 11th, 2011, 03:33 PM
I think we now have about 6 threads merged into one here. It's not I don't have other things to do like ban spammers.
