Okay. I took a better look through those e-mails and I see what's going on. Ade started a new UK MV forum and sent the e-mail to several of us and the e-mail list is very long - which is why I didn't go all the way done to the body for each e-mail. Other people then responded to Ade using "reply all" so it appears we got the same e-mail several times over.

So, it's technically not spam but just looked that way. Here's the message:

Dear all

I’m very pleased to inform you all that Riccardo (Frenaugo) and myself have now set up a new MV Agusta forum here in the UK.

http://www.mvagustauk.net/forum/forum.php

The new mvagustauk.net forum has taken some leads from the highly respected and well presented US based forum mvagusta.net and hopes to provide a slightly different feel because it is esentially UK orientated.

You may see that there are already a number of familiar faces contributing, some that you may indeed already recognise. We would be absoulutely delighted if you would join us and contribute to what we hope will be a succesful meetingplace for like minded MV Agusta officianado’s.

I must stress that just because this is a UK based forum that it has not been designed for UK MV owners in particular, the point I am trying to make is that we hope it will have a slightly different feel and format to the US forum and in reality we recognise that it is the members/contributors that actaully make the forum what it is and provide it with its unique identity.

At this time we are only 3 weeks up and running and there are many aspects that will need ‘Tweaking’ such as the front page for example, but as they say ‘Rome Wasnt Built In A Day’ but we would like to hope that our small village in England is gradually taking shape brick by brick and would very much value your input.

Ricc and I would love to see you sign up and tell us what you would ideally like to see in a forum and what would make you feel at hope and be happy to identify with.

See you there.

Ade

Your e-mail's in your profile. It will appear when I try to send you an e-mail.

Personally I find this highly disrespectful as i was not informed about this. Using the e-mail addresses here on this forum to send unsolicited email is wrong in my book. I've sent Ade a message and will await his reply.

If the email addresses Ade used were customers and friends of his on his mailing list how is that disrespectful?
