Anyone know anything about this group?

Recommended Posts

At Wibby's suggestion I have moved this thread to the New and Views so that all may be warned.

Please read Wibby's post below.

I received this email today and wonder if anyone knows anything about this group?

And how did they get my email address?

Email read as follow:

Hello LGBTQIA Community Member

There is a NEW online community site designed by and for the LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queer, Intersex, and Allied) community called EveryQ. EveryQ is for YOU. It is an inclusive community, with groups, departments, services within EveryQ that will identify relevant information on events, issues etc. within every subculture of the community.

You may ask yourself, why EveryQ? Why not another site? Aren?t there currently sites that service segments of the LGBTQIA community?

Yes, that is true, but existing sites have monthly/yearly fees or focus on one segment of our population to the exclusion of the others. As the next generation of online community, EveryQ is a free site where we can all go to enhance our lives. Organizations, advertisers and supports are welcome.

Check it out here: http://www.everyq.com

It's spam. They're evil. I got several today.

They also sent them to all the CodeysWorld folks.

How fucking irresponsible do you have to be to send emails like that to kids who may not even be out? Or send emails to work addresses? And so on. Just insane. They were kind enough to send me three copies, none of which I asked for.

That's just totally unacceptable. If you feel as strongly as I do, send 'em a note from their website. I know I will.

I also request that Des move this from the Staff room to a public area. People need to be warned that this is NOT the kind of group you want to give your personal details to. They have NO CONCERN for your privacy. They harvested your names from message boards and who knows where else.

BAD PEOPLE. My two cents.

I posted a much longer and testier version (including results of site inspection) at CodeysWorld in the announcement area. BE WARNED.
