I have just one checked option in my EE subscriptions. I opted in to receive the newsletter recently. I believe that asking for a monthly newsletter does not grant permission for other marketing email.
"Receive the monthly community newsletter, full of top articles and contributions from community members like you, plus timely tech news you won't want to miss. "
Since that subscription I have had email from "Simon" extolling the virtue of a business account and "... how to keep your team in the know and on the offensive without high consultation fees.
Should I treat this as a possible bug, or as a difference in opinion on the ethics of a newsletter subscription?
