So in the past years, we had to deal with CSM candidates spamming people with mail. This year, we have to deal with CCP spamming people with mail.

Because one mail is now spam?

With the increase in shiptoasting, the Report timer needs to be shortened.

Seems legit. P

Not that 250,000 mining, market and scout alts really give a rat's ass about a mail from CCP... just saying. Roll

CCP sending the one email so far in 12 months is not spam.

I think it is actually closer to 2 years, iirc.

Yes, the CSM team of Xhagen and Dolan sent a mail to all active accounts today and this will be the only one you receive from CCP. The CSM are such an important conduit to the devleopers and producers in CCP and we want to ensure that you all have the option to get your candidate of choice elected and representing you.

sent implies they are done.
only one in three of my accounts got a mail about the CSM.
not that i care, because i've already voted, but still... it's not ALL active accounts, unless they aren't done.

simple thing to do, dont vote, screw the CSM PR squad., they wont help YOU anyway

Best way to vote in any game, is with money. If you dont like something, stop giving money.

It's one letter. You get the same amount every time you insure a ship and then another when you upgrade a clone. You then get two letters when you get the ship blown up and podded.

That's 4 letters for a single course of events and you complain about one letter a year from CCP.

The very sun of heaven seemed distorted when viewed through the polarising miasma welling out from this sea-soaked perversion, and twisted menace and suspense lurked leeringly in those crazily elusive angles of carven rock where a second glance shewed concavity after the first shewed convexity.

yeah those four clicks it takes to open the mailbox, look at the message, delete the mail and close the box again are a bloody outrage

even worse the bank spams my mailbox every three months with 'balance statement' nonsense

my own mother has the gall to send me letters about how she's going

i should have her arrested

I envy your life where a single mail in a game client is the biggest problem you have to deal with.

upon further investigation i have discovered an organisation entirely dedicated to spamming my mailbox on an almost daily basis. this nefarious 'post office' has been sending agents to maliciously place printed articles inside my property simply because they have my name on them. i attempted to intercept one of these 'posties' but was shocked when he looked me directly in the eye while he placed the offending matter in my mailbox and cried "g'day" in broad daylight.

i have trapped my mailbox with a wasps nest while i continue my inquest into this insidious organisation's practices

OH RLY!

I get emails from CCP several times a month!
From "Your Credit Card has been billed for 1 life." To "You've been banned from the forums for X reason."

So yes, I do get spam from CCP about 36 times a year. (Give or take.)

Those are communications sent to you as caused by your own actions, and do not meet the definition of spam.

Comparing the pre email and post email vote counts and possibly ballets voted pre and post should be very interesting data points for the vote visibility argument.
