Over the last several weeks the number of e-mails per page has increased greatly & there are many, many duplications. Why has this been done?
It hasn't been done on purpose.
You may be seeing the system straining under the sheer number of people on the list now. I've made a couple of changes that may fix the problem, but I won't promise it. The software simply isn't build to handle as large a list as we have now (over 6K people) and I haven't had the bandwidth to track down a new solution.
Click on "My Account" >> "Notification Settings" and then set "Notify Status" to "Disabled" and click "Save" if you'd like off the list.
