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

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?

If replies above state that they received it as spam, then that strikes me as odd. And through much communication between him and I, was there a reason why I was particularly left off? Does the new rise of the UK forum come in line with his dropped sponsorship?... many questions to be answered. I won't discuss this further here.

I got the same emails but I have bought several items from Ade so my email is no secret to anyone.
