I keep getting e-mails from CBN in spite on clicking all the buttons to keep that from happening including "no e-mails from CBN".
I'm new to all this..rookie builder and new to "social networking".

i have been enjoying this group for months---thought i'd join in, rather than lurking, especially since i have been so constantly delighted with what i've seen and heard from so many of you here...
BUT... i'm a hermit.
i just don't need or want to know everytime something happens in here or in a group i've joined.
i do not need to spend ANY time cleaning out my mailbox of notices i do NOT want.

i have a GREAT new hobby i'd rather be spending my time on!!! zan.

I just deleted 167 emails after being away for a week. Unticked the boxes and just received an email about your post which is ironic to say the least. The only success I have had is half way down the notification email is a link that states
To stop following new discussions in this group, go to:
click on this and it will disable notifications from that particular group. Its a slower process but worked for me..
Hope this helps Zandi
Thanks, Penny, i'll give it a try..... as it is, i try to remember to make sure the "stop following" function is on with every discussion i go to read, which is a nuisance in itself.

why do i all of a sudden feel as if i am BIG BROTHER TAGGED...???
......that ain't right !!!!!!!!

it's easier NOT sign in to read the discussions...what kind of sense does that make ????...zan.
maybe someone else has some better advice... or maybe email Shane to get the low down on it... if you find the definitive solution let me know...
The other thing I did was set up a hotmail (free online email account and use that address for CB Nation) stops the mails jamming up my real email address....

I tried it...had to sign back in, to me to the group which sent the e-mail...saw no other option but to 'leave group'.
i feel as if i've bumped into a Tar Baby... yikes!!!

and, get a whole other e-mail address...???
.....it is A solution, but i feel as if i've gotten penalized for joining....that way is just too high maintenance for me.

I'm going to give this a little time... and see if i can figure out how to e-mail Shane without having to join another group.
it is all like some kind of bizarre electronic slavery....

i may just have to stop being a member of CBN...if so, know i'm out here, VERY SUPPORTIVE and GREATLY ADMIRING, but doing my bit to stop needless electronic pollution from leaving its footprints on my portals...zan.
yeah I had that problem with a group...left the group, but still kept getting notifications, so joined it again so I could hit the stop following group thing then left again...think that worked!!!...it would be a shame to leave the Nation for that reason, if you let Shane know I'm sure he'd be able to sort it out : -)
Yes.. i did what i could...even contacted shane but have gotten no response yet from him--- but great responses from a lot of helpful folks...i thought it was sorted out---turned out it was not.
i wish there was some way to opt in when i want to follow instead of having to opt out of every single thing i read anytime when i am signed in ...seems backward to me...
it is a creepy Big Brother feeling...so, i'll just not sign in so often...i was doing just fine that way...no e-mails to remind me of EVERY footstep i take in here... i may be old, but my memory is still pretty intact.... so far....z.

Yeah, the email thing default is really the opposite of what it should be - it should be that you can follow it if you chose to, but it seems that you have to hit "stop following" on every page you comment on. I'm sure that Shane will address this at some point but he is pretty busy with regular admin and then I think all of you know that his sister needed an emergency liver transplant.... pretty difficult stuff. After you get tired enough of deleting emails, you start to remember to hit the "stop following" link.... but yes, it is totally a pain and a waste of bandwidth!
Yes, Lana, i agree totally...seems to be opposite of what it should be....wasted energy and bandwith, i agree.

I've been reading for months and i know Shane has a lot on his plate right now... i'm toooo familiar with organ transplant scenarios via MY little sister and a cousin...my sympathies and prayers have been with them since i first read about it.

I was ready to join CBN, finally, the day TC was banned---scared me away until last week--- i am soooo not looking for my privacy to be invaded... and now, this manifestation of wierdness.... oh, well... i'll find a way to cope.
I just knew i had to be the stand up b---- that i am.
If i did not at least question--- or bark at--- something 'thet just ain't right' lurking in the dark, i guess i wouldn't be me.
I'm a hermit... have crafted a near monastic life for myself. You all, as individuals, and as a collective, exude FABULOUS energy... i'm proud to stand up and be counted as one of your ranks. (not anything i have been willing to say about any other 'group of folks' in a VERY LONG time.)

I am willing to trust my heart, head and gut on this ... all the kind responses i've gotten have validated my perception that you are very OK be-ings.....thanks.Lana...zandi z.
