It seems a number of people missed the post about the newsletter so here is the info again.

IB has asked us not to send out the newsletter because of the new Canadian Spam Law. They need to be sent an email asking if they wish to opt in to newsletters and/or other material that gets sent out. IB is a huge company with millions of members all over the world. There are many, very many different forums and web sites in the company.
Until they are sure they have everything sorted out and taken care, we cannot send out the newsletter.

When IB gives us the go ahead, it will be sent out again. We have no idea when that will be. We had been told Aug 1st and that didn't happen. It is almost Sept 1st and they have not projected a date.

Thanks Sharon, hopefully everyone will see this. I may bump it here and there to try and keep it on the "new" post for awhile if that is okay.

I guess I saw something posted either in the friendship posts or on the Front Porch on FB. But let me get this straight.. IB won't let the newsletter be sent out because Canada has a new law.. IB is supposed to send out notices asking FC members if they want to opt in to the newsletter from FC?? Any group I get emails/newsletters from usually send out their own email to have people opt in the receiving info from them; don't know what IB is doing.. but if they have access to FC's membership list they should have handled this opting in or out already-but it shouldn't have stopped newsletters from going out to other countries. 'Course I might be understanding this all wrong.
I wouldn't mind seeing the links to some of the more popular conversations showing up on the Front Porch on FB though. I don't always get the posts from FC in my email, but I try to make it back every week or more even so..
Hope they get things cleared up soon..

Pam, the newsletters are sent out through IB through their email server. I have to log in to IB in order to send them out. IB owns FC. We do not have the necessary forms to send out to opt in.

That law went into effect July 1st. I would think that all opt in's would have had to be done by then.
FC is a little bump on a big log.
