As pointed out by Siadine of Tryppin Tyria it seems that the site Guild Wars 2 Riches is going to be sold. That by itself isn’t an issue and none of my business. The problem is the owner is also selling the mailing list of all those who subscribed to his site without giving any warning whatsoever about it. There is absolutely no way to know what the new owners will do with those e-mails. So if you subscribed to his newsletters the best advice I can give is to try unsubscribing to it. I don’t know if it will do much good or if it might be too late.
To all my readers and friends, I deeply apologize for this. The site has been deleted from my blogroll already and from now on I will be avoiding adding those kind of blogs to my blogroll. I am making an exception to Guild Wars 2 Trading Post since it is already there, the owner seems to be a decent fellow and it still provides good tips. I will be keeping a close eye on his one too, just in case.
Once again, my deeply apologies for this mess.
And just in case someone thinks I am making this up, you can see the site for sale here. Notice the line about the mailing list as a “feature” for any prospective buyers.
EDIT: dolada06, the owner of the Guild Wars 2 Riches site, made his defense on the comment section of this post, including a link to his site where he goes into further details about this. I think I already made my stand on this whole issue pretty clear both on this post and in the comments section. I am also taking out the Guild Wars 2 Trading Post link off my blogroll as there seems to be some drama going on between both sites that I’d rather not associate myself with, nor get any of my readers or friends caught up in the crossfire either. This will also be the last I will talk about this whole mess. From next post on we go to our irregular ramble.
