coming from Martin Doyle.

Nice. rolleyes.gif

Were the addresses harvested from the Noiseboard user database?

Is that what crashed the board?

I was wondering where the fuck that was coming from.

Whatever, nothing more than a mild annoyance.

Still... I do like to limit my email intake to things I've willingly subsrcibed to or give a rat's left nut about.

Just a little FYI for the MFD. tongue.gif

Same here, I was more curious as to how he got them.

Because it only could have happened one of two ways:

1. Someone from the noiseboard admin crew provided them to him, which I doubt.

2. Or, he (or somebody who works with him) used a harvesting tool and cracked them from the board without the users' or admin's consent, which is illegal.

Either way, it's a scumbag move.

Does anybody else on this board have your email, or are you subscribed to other bands' emailings? I think that's how mine got on there. Though I don't mind getting the ones from Martin, some good shows coming up.

just being on another band's list doesn't make it ok, though (imho)
if someone swipes it from them, shame on that person
if the band doesn't BCC, shares or otherwise doesn't protect ya, shame on them

No, that's the point.

The email address associated with my noiseboard login (which is the one I got the spam from) is NOT the one I use for band/music related stuff, and no one here has it.

I wouldn't mind if it were something I signed up for either.

I don't ever really care who it was. The fact that I'm getting unsolicited spam email from my noiseboard related login bugs the shit out of me.

Oh, I don't blame you for being sore about it, I think it's a bit suspicious too.

It's annoying when it shows up even though I never signed up for it.

I heard from a reliable source that you did sign up for it,bra!

There was no harvest.

Did bring names from my Overdraught and Basement Rock Club lists over. So maybe on that or you signed up on the myspace page box and forgot.

And the service Underground Control uses let's you desubscribe with one click if you don't want to get the helpful alerts anymore.

I've already done the unsubscribe.

I've never actually set foot in the either the Overdraught or the Basement, and I don't have a myspace page associated with that email address, so there's no way I'd be on those lists, unless someone else put me on it without my knowledge.
