Troubles with the Second Life Blogger group. [Update]

by on May.09, 2010, under Uncategorized

If you are one of the people who gets innudated with emails after the Second Life bloggers group moved from Ning to Grouply,  Eddi Haskell has written a explanation on how to get yourself removed.
Ning is changing to a paid service only and the Second Life bloggers group moved to Grouply consequently. At first we where invited to create a new account at Grouply, but I and I assume many others choose not to do that. I never really used the Ning group anyway in the several years I was a member. Apparently all of the almost 1500 members got transferred over anyway, causing quite a stir because group messages work differently and seem to be emailed to every one. What caused some people with auto responders on their email to broadcast their phone numbers and emails to all the other member. 

I’m assuming good intentions of the group owners, and not having known the difference in behaviour of the services. I hope if you are affected you can get yourself removed, or with the help of the group owners.

To all Second Life Bloggers.My deepest and sincerest apologies on the whole Grouply matter. I had no idea it would turn into a spam machine. My blackberry was loaded with spam as well as messages pleading for help and not a few angry ones. 

 Obviously Grouply is NOT the solution.For a temporary fix I’ve disabled ALL messages on all my Grouply groups until such time as I can delete all of them, any help with how to delete a grouply group would be appreciated. 

 Again I’m so very sorry for the disruptions and it WAS very unprofessional.
