Joe, Hello. As I mentioned my email to you, PBwiki provides a pretty wide range of simple opt-out tools, including a link at the bottom of every email we send and notification preferences at As noted in the privacy policy, our support team also has the ability to manually disable email transmissions to a given address. We have plenty of email marketing preference settings; emailing to our privacy@ address is definitely not the only way people have of opting out of our messages. Not to mention the fact that we don't spam or sell your email address to email marketers etc. That's simply not the business we're in. We are in the business of providing groups with secure and effective wikis and charging them for their use of our service. I'd be happy to talk more with you about your specific concerns about our privacy policy. As you can see here we're not afraid of open dialogue about this issue.

Ten to one you PBwiki hacks don't allow my comment on your privacy policy to go through. No worries. I'm going to find dozens of places to post it.

I notice that you didn't address the PRIVACY part of the question. PBwiki users and potential users should be aware of this is the privacy policy (as of 8/7/08): "We offer you the opportunity to choose not to receive communications from us. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please let us know by sending us an email to privacy (at) pbwiki (D0T) com" So PBwiki makes users go to the privacy policy and then manually type an email address to order to opt out of third party spam. That is f'ed up. And you have no email marketing preference settings? "...we are not responsible for removing information about you from the database of any third party with which we shared your Personal Data prior to processing your request." You folks are pretty bold...but I imagine there are plenty of fools who will use your service. I'm not one of them. And I will strongly discourage anyone I know to use you.

I'm experiencing Error 500 messages on both this blog and the PB Wiki survey. I do not know if my submission was successful as I did not receive a confirmation.
