    I have been clicking the second link and removing my email address from SitePoint's lists and marketing mails for over a year now. Everytime I get told that I will not get another email and everytime there is a new damn release I get an email....

    DO NOT EMAIL ME MARKETING MATERIAL EVER AGAIN. This email has been reported as Spam to my Internet Provider (Verizon Online, the largest telephone company in the United States) and to Spamnet.

    My apologies for this Wayne. With your help I've uncovered a bug in our list building facility, which I'm rectifying now.

    Could you please email or PM me a list of any other email addresses you might have used with us over the years and I'll make sure they on our Do Not Email lists.

    My apologies once again.
