For some reason My email is being spammed by vendors on here ..I would like to know how they got my email addy? I don't see it listed in my profile, I don't subscribe to them! Could someone explain how they would have gotten it and why??

Chris has addressed this several times. Search is your friend. It is not pb distributing your email addresses. I get them as well and cannot figure out the source. Some I get do not come from pb advertisers too.

Whatever :rolleyes:
If the tank has fish then its gonna smell........coincidence or not it seems we here are targeted by spam from certain advertisers. Cunning/clever job at searching for e-mail addy's? I pretty much doubt it.
Yeah, yeah, unsubscribe I'm told.........from something I never subscribed to.:mad:

It's very possible, but I don't think anyone knows for sure what's going on. Obviously these companies have contracted with some third party.

I get email from companies I've never purchased from, Shogren for just one example. It may be coming from some other board too if you belong there and similar companies advertise multiple boards.

I'm not saying you lied, never insinuated it either. You're just relaying what you've been told.

We should start our own boating site...we could call it Hotboat ... :p
LMAO! :D

I've gotten the same thing. I just check it off as spam a couple times and my spam filter picks it out. :)bulb

So you are insinuating Chris is lying to us all... ;)

Somehow knowing him for 30 years I doubt that. :)

I agree that is the simple solution. I get 300 spam emails per day. A few from advertisers here and on other boards really don't make much of an impact one way or the other.

:confused: I won't say that either. But I will say people and employees I've known/had for several decades surprised me at times........ The mighty dollar is thicker than blood sometimes. That's what I'm insinuating :p:)
