    Icon E-mail workshop ad spam from CA

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Here too, a dozen between yesterday morning and now, about every two hours. I'm routing conceptart.org to spam for now.

    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.

    Best,

    John

    got 6, but I don't really mind since gmail has them nicely grouped together in 1

    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...

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Dont appreciate the spam

    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

    ELEVEN emails from TAD and CA

    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!

    I was about to post the same thing.. Its annoying and, to be honest, it gets me less and less interested.

    Me too. I'm pretty sure it wasn't intentional.

    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    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.

    Unprofessional

    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
