I have introduced a few changes on my blog and book web sites this morning, around how I accept signups for the three email newsletters I publish.
A couple of people have mentioned that they are receiving spam to the special email addresses they set up for the Working With People You Can’t Be With newsletter. The list was powered by an external service, and apparently the external service was hacked (or so one of the email recipients told me).
I don’t like that … and neither do the people receiving my newsletters. Therefore, effective immediately, I have cancelled my subscription to the external service, and will accept signups through my own forms service, and then send the newsletters out internally.
I apologize for the inconvenience. It’s not good enough.
