So, you continue to harass them, and you wonder why they banned you. Shocking...

The answer is quite simple. Create a filter to delete the messages and you won't ever see them. Not that complicated to do.

I would say if HD got more active then wht there would need to be a professional standard put in place for all those that work for HD. The Friendliness would need to continue on all levels.

However, with that being said we also have to take into account that wht maybe has been up a little longer then HD. I believe the owner said in other post that HD lost some attention due to the market.

NO
its the first email i had had in 10 year since they banned me and they asked the question

so i told them why not.

i was banned as i reported a scammer who was on their forum and they allowed this scammer to remain.

as i was banned 10 year ago an no longer a member then sending the email breach the GDPR, so before long they will find out that they wont be allowed to hold details of any UK or EU person on a computer file or manual file.

That there is a problem in itself. The new company is very heavy on their email marketing. What's worse, their "unsubscribe" feature doesn't even work. I have repeatedly tried to unsubscribe from their newsletters (to things I did not even sign up for in the first place), yet I kept on receiving them.

I raised a question by making a post on WHT and it received enough replies to realize there was an issue. At some point one of the WHT staff members posted an email reply he received from an Informa employee with instructions and an email address to write to in order to rectify the issue locally. That post was removed super quickly, sending a signal they weren't that interested in people leaving their mailing lists.

Interestingly, it has been many months of calmness, until just days ago I received a brand new newsletter.

The owner said that all hosting forums in general have seen a decline for a number of reasons, including due to hosting market changes.

Because their unsubscribe button does not work and they sending these to people that have never requested these then they are in breach of the GDPR, so after contacting then ICO in then UK who have had many complaints about this, they are in then process of working with other UK authorities to close down all the Informa offices in then UK and EU and revoking their GDPR registration. this would make it a criminal and federal offence if they stored personal details of any EU/UK person on computer databases or manual files.

I honestly feel with WHT they only support the bigger companies - from their business prospective it is more revenue for them! Which is such a bad outlook as they are basically killing competition BUT thank goodness for HostingDiscussion hey
