XC Newsletter

<h1><a href="http://www.xcritic.com">XCritic Newsletter</a></h1>




With the split off to XCritic the Blue Room Newsletter has moved to a new mailing service. Over at XC we just sent out a note to everyone who had previously subscribed to the Blue Room newsletter, anyone who opted in to the newsletter from an adult giveaway or opted in at the new XC Forum.

If for some reason you got this notice and DON'T want the newsletter. There's a quick 1 click unsubscribe at the bottom of it.

The LAST thing we want is for someone to get it who doesn't want it.

I unsubscribed from it, but I don't understand why I was subscribed in the first place.

I get the DVDTalk newsletter but I never signed up for the Blue Room one or entered an adult giveaway. Was I sent one simply because I signed up for the DVDTalk newsletter?

No the list was not at all connected with the DVD Talk Newsletter. Have you joined the XCritic forum?

I haven't joined the forum either, and still got it. Very annoying to get spam like this for no reason...and the unsubscribe takes you to a shady looking site.

Thank you, I didn't mind the email but was confused as to why I got it. I hope the switchover is still going well.

Same here. I have not visited the new site and certainly was never getting the adult newsletters.

Sounds like maybe something got confused and it sent the e-mail to many unintended addresses. At least the e-mail was innocuous (IMO) and hopefully the unsubscribe worked as well as it seemed to.

We're using Feedblitz for the newsletter and their unsub is immediate. I'll look into why you may heave gotten on the list if you hadn't intended. Everything was pulled from the XC forum/db/etc nothing here.

I read the threads on XCritic but I have never joined.

Please tell me they didn't magically get my e-mail address out of me simply browsing the forum.

I also got the X Critic email when I shouldn't have. I'm not mad, just wanted to let you know! I went ahead and "unsubscribed".

geoff,

Just a thought you already added users that were in adult talk possibly the copy over changed a setting without you noticing.

Same story here. No prob, just don't want it, and never signed up for it.
