Sadly, this morning I see someone has invaded the Sew Whats New subscriber community. These people sent out a message giving links to embroidered hats. This message was NOT sent by me or this site. Please do not be alarmed. There were no viruses attached, just some unethical people advertising.

I have, once again taken the proper steps to report them and keep our list safe. Thanks everyone for your understanding in this matter. I may have to move the list to a new distributor. This is an invasion of our privacy!

Thank you Mary for your hard work. I know this is very difficult for you to keep this site so wonderful. I just wanted to let you know how much I love you and the site.

I will be moving the subscriber list to a private distributor. This may take a little time but it will be done. I could just strangle those people. :throw:

I should have posted this before. There was no harm done by the intrusion. Just some unethical people doing their thing. However, Yahoo is looking into this and I will be moving the list. You will all be notified when things start happening. And now, back to our regularly scheduled programme. :smile:

Marketers are getting desperate. Be glad it wasn't a scam or porn! I've seen plenty of both on some other groups, so you are very good about catching them and enforcing the rules.
