Blog Notifications Flood My Gmail
Yesterday I got a call from a school in need of books, but I wasn't at the right house to get it. My husband gave me the message and I called back to find the caller wasn't there. I left my Gmail address with the person I talked to and asked that caller email the list of what she wanted me to check stock on. About half an our later I checked my email to see if the teacher had sent the request. What did I see instead? What you see in the screen shot and more. In all there were about a hundred notifications of new posts from this one blog. I unsubscribed and emailed her to explain why. The email I was looking for came in this morning.
First, let me say the blog in question is informative. I subscribed because I enjoy it. I often learn something I didn't know. I had been getting weekly emails for new posts, and then, suddenly, what must have been the links to every previous post all at once. I can't believe it was intentional. She's not a spammer. That's why I emailed her. Had this happened on my home computer where everything goes neatly into a file as it comes in, I would not have been so upset. But having my inbox invaded like this was overwhelming. I'm guessing there was a glitch in her subscription service. That's a bit scary. It might happen to any unsuspecting blogger.
Have you ever had something like this happen?
