DaVinci Institute Meetup Group Message Board › Spam Emails That Have Been Circulating
I am terribly sorry that you have received a couple of spam emails - one from Rhonda and one from a Marcia. Thanks to Judah Freed I have changed the settings so this won't happen again.
For any of you out there with Meetup Groups this is a note from Judah Freed.
Many of our groups were spammed yesterday by a "Marcia" with a
link to a diet site. A second wave of spam started a few
minutes ago, this time coming from a "Rhonda" with the same
diet scam spam.
PLEASE TAKE THESE STEPS NOW TO STOP SPAM ATTACKS FROM REACHING
1. Go to your "Group Settings" control panel.
2. Click "Optional features"
3. Scroll down to "Communication"
4. Find your Mailing List settings.
5a. Change setting to "Allow all members to send messages, but
I'll approve messages first." (This means you moderate all
emails, so you can prevent all spam from reaching your members.)
5b. OR, if you prefer, instead, select "Turn mailing list off"
(This disables the list completely, but you can still send
announce-only emails to your members.)
Please take these steps immediately to protect your Meetup
group members from these spam attacks. Also, please forward
this email to as many other Meetup organizers as you can, so we
can stop these spam attacks quickly.
