Available for Rent Lavish Sky Villas Beach-Style 100 Prims Extra included. Hurry to rent your dream home! --- To stop receiving these emails, login to https://accounts.secondlife.com/change_email/ and uncheck "I would like to receive offline IMs via Email This is an IM forwarded to email. This email is not CAN-SPAM act compliant. Doesn't matter that it began as an IM. The law applies to "any electronic mail message the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service" The "initiator" is the SL user who sent it. There's no opt-out link for them. Those spam emails need an "UNSUBSCRIBE" link that just blocks the sender, not all IMs. Spam emails have to have the real-world business address of the sender, so you can sue them. This didn't. (You can't spam anonymously under US law, regardless of LL policy.) LL did their part, offering to turn off IM to email conversion, but that doesn't let the original sender off the hook. All the parties in the chain have to comply. Edited April 18, 2020 by animats 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
