Check your spam folder. That's where I found mine.



Yeah, I've checked my spam folder & my inbox. No newsletter for me, either. (assuming the "WOV Newletter" isn't porny spam)

Maybe Eliot can forward his copy to me?

I kind of want to see what all the fuss is about, I haven't received a newsletter yet either. I'm curious as to what Elliot is so angry about.

Eliot's complaint has nothing to do with the content. It's all about the unwanted email itself.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Now that three people say they have looked for it in their spam folders, congratulations are in order to "teliot" for creating a lot more interest in the "newsletter" than it would ever have got by itself without that help. It has the attention of at least three whole people actually spending a few seconds intentionally looking for it for it! If you've ever glanced at the "most active threads" list on the forum you've basically seen the "newsletter." It has a "view this email online if it..." link, which I'd gladly pass along so y'all could have the satisfaction of seeing the same thing you already see on the site, but it's a dead link.

It was in the spam folder of my designated spam sign-up Yahoo crapmail dummy account, so it was rejected as spammy by my spam. So, right where it should be, and all is well, as far as I'm concerned. Probably got there because unlike the better class of spam that fake email account lives for, it didn't say I must hurry because riches are waiting for me at XYZ Casino's tournament or promotion, did not inform me that I've probably already won a quadrillion dollars, and most egregiously, it failed to contain a single soft-porn picture of babes draped over a much younger and far better looking version of me sitting in front of a mountain of chips, or any nubile nymphets reclining over a sports car I will surely win. I'm outraged by this. I want my babes & nymphets, and it will continue to be rejected as a substandard grade of spam by my normal spam account until it has that.

I heard back from the company that LCB used to send this mass email. They had already deactivated the campaign before I contacted them. The reason for deactivation was for violation of the ToS. That settles the matter. It was spam. I am sure LCB will be more sensitive to the ToS in their next mass-email endeavor.

As far as the content for those of you who didn't receive it, here is the first quoted article in the newsletter, an advertisement for some online casinos:

Indeed our subscription was unilaterally cancelled. But not for the reasons they claim. And thats all I have to say about that. Take it the way you want, dont care.

Now let me clarify for the LAST TIME:

We do not use spam databases. The ONLY databases we use are the ones that belong to our network websites, as part of the sign up process, subscriptions, and so forth. None of these emails were acquired illegally.

Now , we did understand that some WoV membership might get upset as they never opted in , or thought they havent. Which is exactly why we started this topic to be transparent about our plans and give ppl a chance to unsubscribe,. You cant get more transparent than that. Not to mention this is the 3rd time we had spoke about this ( 1st time was after the acquisition , 2nd time was like year or so ago and 3rd time now ).

As to your arguments to delete the database, no reasonable person would do that , knowing that there is much more users that actually prefer to get the updates. And after all database was part of the sale. Period,.

Bottom line is, We did everything in good faith, and yet it is not enuff to some .

Your email was removed from our list, so I strongly urge you to move on .

cheers

Unless I missed it, I don't think anyone accused you of THAT.
