No, that's easy. Anyone can do it. cool

The irony is, when V123 first switched from their old way of doing things to "SmartCast," the big complaint was there were job leads people wanted but weren't getting. Now, with the new format, the complaint is, there are job leads people don't want but they are getting.

I asked them yesterday to pull me from their rolls (I've been inactive there for 9 years), but again today I got another annoying "invitation" to audition. When I emailed them just now asking them again to stop I noticed the invitation's email address is "help" at V123. There's your sign....

In regards to getting "email I don't want" the simple solution is to set up your email program to filter your email and send anything that comes from v123 directly into the "trash" file.

I'm a mozilla thunderbird user, but I can't help but think that most email programs today have a similar function if you look for it.

Once done. Any Email that arrives from an unwanted source is routed out of my inbox, and I never even see them.

Problem solved.

Yes, I use Thunderbird as well and set up a LOT of filters (trashing, auto-filing, whatever). Yes, I could easily filter out V123 emails... the problem is that I still have people who contact me via V123, so I don't want to have my listing deleted. Receiving these unwanted emails is an annoyance in and of itself, but also a reminder of how they've screwed up. I could ignore it... of course... but I can't run the risk of letting a client down by missing a communication. I'm sure they'll fix it eventually. However, it's interesting that there's a buzz around that so many "undocumented features" have been uncovered that they may actually fall-back to the old platform.
