I have received this inquiry twice now. Perhaps you guys can do something about this.
To whom it may concern,
I haven't received any spam from kreg forums. I use registerforless.com, basically a website where I have my email sent to. I can make up as many address as I want and have them forwarded wherever I want (usually a free service like gmail). One of them was for email@example.com. I have a filter where everything from mywebsite gets sent to my inbox. when I receive an email, I can look and see who it was sent to and I know who I gave that custom email to. I haven't received any spam from kreg.
When I do receive spam I do let whomever know right away. I have not received any spam from kreg. Are they being selective about who they are spamming? Was I just not one of the chosen ones? Are you sure that it is kreg that was infiltrated?
Just stirring up that grey matter between your ears.
