It seems that some corporate email software is scanning incoming email and testing all links. We noticed that this scanning software inadvertently UNSUBSCRIBES some members by activating the Unsubscribe link. If you did not receive an email from us recently (or February 16th when our next campaign goes out), please check with your IT department.
Unfortunately, we are unable to add you back manually because of compliance policies. You will need to sign up again by clicking here. We hope to see you back on our list soon!
