Greetings everyone,

One of the new features provided by our platform is the ability to reply to an email notification about a discussion and have your reply show up in the discussion. Whether you like this or not is probably a different discussion... one you might find answers to here: You have every right to prefer not to...

In any case, please be careful when replying.

There are two things we are seeing rather frequently when you take advantage of this functionality.


  • If your email program/client includes the previous replies, so will your reply to the thread. This makes for some crazy monster threads after a while, to the point that DanielleH sometimes has to edit your post to chop them out. It also makes it difficult to read the post when you are reading a reply and then lapse back into all the previous conversations before you see if there is a newer reply.

  • If your email signature contains personal contact information you don't want on the boards, edit it out. This is one of the more concerning issues around the reply by email function. Danielle will always edit this material out, when she sees it. We do not want you to reveal more than you should on the boards. Please remember, you need to log in to post or download (and in the future, to vote... oops, let that slip), but you do not need to log in to view the discussions.

Again, maybe I'm paranoid, but I like to think of myself as just looking out for other folks' paranoia. Heck, you can find my contact info on here rather quickly... but, that's my job. I don't think you want vendors calling you the way they call me.


See you on the boards,
