This is a current topic on the spark leader boards. Please take a moment to read it. It is important and regarding chain mailings.

"We are having more problems with these chain mailings lately. They are bothering a lot of members--especially when people use the "Reply All" button to ask that they be taken off the mailing list (and often include some pretty nasty comments).

Both Coach Jen and I have sent notes to members whose names appear on the mailing list when we see one of these things, telling them not to respond and not to use the Reply All button. Since our community guidelines do require members to cooperate with requests from the coaches, people who appear to be deliberately participating in these mailings after being asked not to can have their accounts closed.

We hope to avoid having to do this, and we're not trying to track down the originator of the latest batch of these things. However, this problem does need to stop happening, so that people don't stop using sparkmail just to avoid getting too much of this kind of spam.

Therefore, please do pass the word to your team members that they should not respond to any mailing they may get of this sort, and should NOT use the Reply All button to request that they be removed from the mailing list. It doesn't really help us to get a million reports about these mailings, especially since it's very hard to determine who originated it, so it's probably better to just ask your people to break the chain by not replying, rather than asking everyone to report any mailing that they get.

If this doesn't minimize the problem, we'll look at more direct ways to handle it.

Thanks for your help.

Coach Dean"
