Will do. Also, at the bottom of each email is an "privacy" link. Just click. This is the standard in the industry now.

This will then allow you to do all you want regarding your privacy. I wouldn't have the community any other way. There is lots happening here invisibly - that's how teachers/students want it.

But yes, always feel free to contact us. Further, remember your settings page. You can change how you are contacted and all levels of privacy there. Click the button on the top right corner of the main page.

What? Where? How come I don't know about it??? ;)

there are a number of classrooms here and if you aren't "their friend" they won't appear on your radar. They keep groups or run a blog. You aren't out of the loop but anyone can start a classroom or a blog and keep it off the radar so to speak. Plus, when I do workshops I always tell teachers to make a classroom id/pw. All the students and teacher could use it , at the same time too. So there are "at times" more here and happening than we might think.... For example, do you see this blog?

But about letting people know about how to unsubscribe . It is a double edged sword. I agree it should be transparent. I dislike those who make it hard. But at the same time, you can only do so much or you run the risk of having a spirit and mentality of - " get lost, this place isn't special"....

Yes, now that you mention it I remember that Tsornin keeps a class here, but I rarely see evidence of them! I'd say like the mice in my house, but you know David, not everyone feels affectionate towards rodents so I don't want to offend : )

I think the privacy settings are fine as they are. Now that Karen knows where to look, she'll be able to control all sorts of email lists that one ends up on (it is the industry standard, as you said.)

I just don't want to miss out on anything- Adele says it's the youngest child syndrome. Probably so.

Comment by ddeubel on September 6, 2010 at 10:50am

I have to google and read up on that "youngest child syndrome" . I'm just an expert in the "middle son" syndrome - I guess that's fair. We all become experts on who we are, not where we are going...
