This site has become incredibly expensive to run. Pushing closer to six figures a month with every spike in traffic, which has broken records every month since April. I can no longer afford to pay for it myself, not even close, and this community must continue to support itself with educational content as we are, or I have to lock it up and make it private, or close the doors completely. Either this site supports itself or we are done here.
That being said, every time you use this site we pay. If you do not like getting an email once a week to let you know about all our extremely valid learning programs which CA's funds go right back into keeping this site up and running and moving forward, then I will simply ban your account and close your ability to post here.
I find it extremely disappointing that folks sign up, accept the email options, and then complain if they get notified about some amazing class a world famous artist is giving their time to teach and support this communitiy or if they get an update on all the great art posted here.
CA has been run out of the goodness of heart from hundreds of volunteers over the past eight years. Don't want to see CA get support? Then you don't need to be here.
Thanks for the understanding. If you still want no emails, just post here in this thread and I will ban you personally for wasting my time and the community's money. Banned users don't get emails.
