Email, Monkeys and Flagpoles

Last Update: April 16, 2016

The ever growing barrage of emails seems to be getting worse and is affecting all of us as it chews up valuable time and energy. Further, we are having to endure the nonsense of one of our own members who has gone rogue and is flooding our email systems with his, "Great news, a comment of yours.....". It almost feels like that old monkey chasing his tail around the proverbial ....flagpole.

The username of the fellow in question is Suphat Pasree. When you get his email, drop it right away. Don't bother opening. You are wasting time. What if about 10.000 of us sent him a PM? That might slow him up a bit. Just a one word message. Nothing unpleasant, of course.

What I wanted to get to everybody about is that I came across two good little ways to deal with all the email. There are a lot of good ideas out there. TopAchiever posted a good one just a couple days ago. That one involves selecting from Account Settings what you want to receive. Good to know. Gives you more control.

Having said that, the ones I found are:

HelenPDoyle has done a solid training and given us a way to avoid the scammers, like our friend. At the same time we can seriously reduce our time spent with emails. She discusses thoroughly Activities and Notifications and how they interface with email. Very helpful.

WilsonJeremy has written a post that takes out some of the confusion in Activities and Notifications and leaves you feeling more in control. Good video here.

Between these two posts and Top achievers, as well, that should make life a little easier.
Have a great weekend,

Dick

I would recommend that you unfollow them. You won't get their posts anymore

The thing is, Joy, that I never followed him. There is no posting. Only the message that a comment has been liked.

I just look for names I want to read and delete the rest. You're one of them, PG Jude, Loes, Halinphilly,joseph etc Mostly those in top tier. I give all the newbies a shot but the folks like this fellow you are talking about are just newbies, not knowing really what it's all about. I can't really get mad at foolish children,

I can tell, there are some that don't appreciate me calling them on their bull do either. I do tend to get my feathers ruffled especially at the spam nazis and the scam scaredys.

Good post Dick

Really neat town. Now it looks like everybody likes Charleston. Actually I live across the river in Mt Pleasant. When we moved here there were only around 5000. Now, about 75,000. Nutsy, huh?
