Did PF just send out an email?

    Hello, let me just say I have no problem with you sending out email, I just want to know if it is legit and not a phishing attempt. I just got curious since I haven't gotten these mails before.

    I got an email about "hot topics", is it legit?

    I see, thanks for the reply, then it is probably ok.

    Yup, legit :)

    I thought it was awesome. I had missed the latest posts on the BICEP 2 wrong? thread.

    Whatever turns you on. With an exclamation mark at the end almost of every sentence my BS filter classified it as, er. BS. Especially since it starts by telling me I'm a member of PF (with exclamation mark). I know I only have the attention span of a goldfish (about 7 seconds), so thanks for reminding me.

    I guess it's something to do with that "Soshul Meeja" dude who seems to be all the rage these days :smile:

    Is it possible to "unsubscribe" from such broadcast emails?
    (I visit PF quite often, so there's no need to send them to me.)

    There is an unsubscribe link. Future emails will respect that.
