Re: On Intentionally Marking Any Message as Spam - DON'T #adminnotice


I don't mark messzages myself, I go through and unmark messages as spam, all I was saying is that some filters look for words which could be.

Its hard to know what will trigger the filter and I have noticed its not going to do it constantly.

I have had messages marked as spam then more from the same poster not marked but this hardly happens at least with gmail so the filters are getting better.

           I anonymized the message, but it's almost certain that someone who is a member of this group used the mark as spam option of their webmail or email client.  No one should, under any circumstances, for any message, ever do that for a message that they have received from a service they subscribed to.  Unsubscribe, or mute the topic, but do NOT mark it spam.

            I suggest you read up on Email Feedback Loops and the havoc they can, and do, wreak.  I would like to prevent that for our members, thanks very much.  Your contention about marking something as spam often enough is just fine, if the thing is actually spam.  But if it isn't, that's another story.  No message from is spam because you asked for it, directly, by subscribing.

The depths of denial one can be pushed to by outside forces of disapproval can make you not even recognize yourself to yourself.
