Newsletter not scam

emsp-11--AQ.jpgOur thanks to alert Silver member Tom Canning (tcann) from Florida, USA for spotting a potential email scam. The good news he spotted it. The better news-- it isn't a scam.

Tom posted a question about emails he's been getting from our Chief Editor, Tom Boné (flashdeadline). They looked a bit suspicious and he asked:

At the top of the email is the logo without the circled R, .org or the statement under 'nikonians'. This makes me suspicious. I just delete the emails. Is anybody else getting these? Are they legitimate?

Well, yes, they are legit. We answered his question:

We've migrated to a "quick and simple" style in the emails because the founders have found the large number of images and links in each email (and to a very large subscription base) was often being filtered out from the subscribers as potential junk mail. The new style leans towards shorter emails with no images and very few links. Instead of coming from an organization, it was decided to take the editor out from the shadows.

The very first link leads to more details plus images.....

Thanks again Tom!
