Message from FraDiavolo Group Owner: Junk mail to the group
- Hi every-one,
In response to the recent chain-letter/junk mail to the group - I am
sure that it was just an honest mistake from the person involved. I
have emailed him directly to explain the issue.
I thought it would be timely for people to understand how I manage
messages to the group.
When people join I personally review each and every message and allow
the related ones through to the group (usually within 1-2 days) and
delete the spam/ads etc.
The group is small (23 members) and I fight hard to keep out the junk
mail. I filter out an average of 5 real junk emails (not mistakes) per
week and then ban the real spammer from ever sending messages to the
When each member has built us a history of genealogy related messages
then I change it so that the messages from that member get distributed
without my approval. This was the case for the sender of the junk
mail. Most members who have sent at least one message fall into this
category (I say most because I may have missed some)
So far this system has worked well - this is the first real junk that
has been distributed to members.
