I have forwarded your request to Lee, the Forum Administrator.
About Tracked emails:
As well as turning off email tracking in your Forum preferences, have a look at the "My tracked discussions" link in the column on the left here. It is the 2nd one down after Forum preferences.
That page will list all the current discussions you are tracking. Remove the ticks for those you no longer want to track, and hit Submit.
Before I start talking about cnet, let me preface it by saying
all roads to contact cnet support or cancel account lead to
the cnet "support email" tab which requires a "Cnet service catagory"
but has no blank to type in the category. So one cannot send email to cnet support at all. Did you guys not find it curious no one in
the whole world is sending email? (at least not from windows IE8).
What also does not work is the page o opt out of email or opt out of tracking updates or...
So, this is off topic in the sense its about CNET web site and spamming, but there is no other place to post it that seems more appropo.
Short version, please cancel my account (mrbill2003).
Long version read on...
No matter how many times i turn off "tracking updates"
I keep getting them. I have opted out of email every way possible, yet they keep coming.
You have a valuable site, valuable service, but you are spamming me.
Many of the downloads i try just don't work as advertised, and i uninstall them. Many work but
are not what i need, i uninstall them. Some I might keep and got them for a one time use. Maybe 5%
I will keep and use and want to update.
I pretty much NEVER want to get any emails about updates just because i download something.
Superfically, you give a way to turn it off, but
it just doesn't work.
So I'm kinda done, but there isn't even a way to cancel my account!
So, pleasssse erase mrbill2003 and the above email from
your entire system. I won't make the mistake of downloading here again.
