Subject Unsolicited email from CouchBase
Date Fri, 30 Aug 2013 12:45:48 GMT
Just wondering - has anyone else on this list been receiving unsolicited marketing emails from
Greg McFarlane at CouchBase? I've never signed up to anything from them, and since I'm only
just dipping my toes into the waters of CouchDB, my participation on this list is pretty much
my only active engagement with the CouchDB community - for now at least :)

In response to the first email (below) I   where my details were obtained but have received
no response until today I got a "follow up" message which made no mention of my request.

This time I'm just clicking the unsubscribe button but it doesn't seem particularly cool to
me to be harvesting emails from an apache list for marketing purposes in the first place,
so I wanted to see if anyone else had been stung.
