Anyone else just receive Easy Redmine spam?

Added by Andy Shinn over 8 years ago

I just received a marketing email for something called 'Easy Redmine'. I never subscribed to their mailing list and I rarely give out the email address used (I only use it for site registrations). So I am wondering, is Easy Redmine affiliated with Redmine at all or are they harvesting email addresses from Redmine.org and spamming the users?

Same here. I am wondering where they got my email address from.
It's a shame they send it as spam, because the product looks very interesting imho...

Same here. I've got this email to address I use only in forums.

Easy Redmine and the Redmine developers are in no way affiliated.
Redmine.org won't give out your email addresses.

We will investigate this issue and I'll write about our findings and / or actions here.

You people should check the Hide my email address box in your profile; I personally never have received any email from Easy Redmine so I guess they harvested the public ones indeed from redmine.org, this is a bit tacky.

I have my eMail address on display here, but I didn't receive an eMail from Easy Redmine.
Perhaps it was a coincidence?
