See that is the thing. Many already have the e-mail preferences set to no, so any e-mail is unsolicited, unsolicited e-mail is spam, spam gets marked spam, don’t want it marked spam, don’t send unsolicited e-mail. Really simple. This idea that some new e-mail category should be created that then has to be opted out of outside of the existing opt outs is apparently how I keep getting this stuff from forums I opted out of (which by the way gets marked spam, deleted (usually) without reading and sends me on a search for what setting was changed.). It is about respecting the choices people have made already, not what is easier for one particular group, or gets the best results for the forum management.
