Due to limitations in both resources and our hosting plan, our e-mail list has always been somewhat rudimentary.
Well, thanks to our new hosting platform (EuroVPS, who we cannot recommend enough), and to the loyal readers who donate to help keep the site going, we are happy to announce an upgrade to this service.
Rather than the basic layout we’ve been forced to use up to now, the new e-mails will have excerpts, author names, featured images and a “read more” link to all the new stories.
Going forward, the newsletters will also be both daily and weekly, and you’ll be able to choose which you prefer using this form:
So what do you have to do?
Well, if you’re currently receiving daily updates, and you want to keep it that way, do nothing. They’ll continue (only looking better than before).
If you’d rather receive weekly updates, simply type your email into the box above, and tick the “weekly updates” box.
If you change your mind in the future, both daily and weekly digest emails will have a “manage subscription” button, which will allow you to switch between daily/weekly e-mails, change your e-mail address and cancel your subscription entirely.

Abracadabra – another ‘ improvement’ that takes away something useful whilst promising to deliver ‘more’.
Comments can no longer be tracked by the posters only the Piss and Shite powers.
Users aren’t allowed to follow threads.
“Less is More”
Are actual , real, readers here still sucking up this koolaid teat? Well ain’t you all so super smart.
Are you talking about this site? Because we haven’t changed anything about the comments section at all.
I tried subscribing again and still not getting updates from off-guardian for anything. Nothing in the Spam. Even the worm laden emails with the dangerous attachments find their way to my spam box. But not off-guardian. They are just gone. Yahoos for you. If you don’t see it you don’t know that they are doing it. At least most of the other big tech organizations tell you about the censorship. Not Yahoo.
Have no expectations of, or this comment at all, being published
Totally think moderators sh’ld only be the highest mindest ppl, capable of making values, oriented judgements,, which represent real truth. Think u have one such moderator here offg ,so sad u don’t have more.
Well we only have two. So 50% isn’t so bad is it 😉.
That rocks Sophie, u totally rock! Love n hugs to all to the team, u truly want to help =)
Added to this, don’t want to cause u to tramel comments but think it wld be useful for u to add strictures to VAST comment threads within an article thread. It’s easy to limit such vast comment threads within a thread of to 5 – 10 comments, with an option to view more, giving choice to other ppl who want to seek comments more appropriate to what they want, rather than having to scroll thru loadsa rubbish.
This is available with far less resourced websites, think it’s worth thinking about.
Seriously happy that critism was allowed. cheers n all that’s good to the team =)
It might help with load times. I will suggest this, see if it’s possible. Ta, A2
serious cheers sam, all that’s good to u n the team =)
We tried auto-hiding replies but people don’t like it. We have no capacity to limit in the way the OP suggests.
Understand but think that’s being craven, many ppl vent their spleens here which i think shldn’t be indulged.
U R A HIGHMINDED SITE, DON’T BE INTIMIDATED
Shills want censorship.
Pity u censored my replies Sophie, that’s a serious, shameless abuse of power.
Sure u’ll censor this comment too, just hope one or two of ur team mates see it, b4 u do.
oops, just refreshed n their not censored yet, consider my above comment a warning to how i’ll view such a censorship
This isn’t a good look Cesca. Stop this now if you don’t want to be identified as a troll.
Thank you for being!
Greatly appreciated. You keep me sane.
Sign up, sign up. We need to link whatever you say to an email account, it’s all part of the character building for the new normal.
Now I brace myself for the barrage of dislikes from the boo boys. Opps, can’t say boys, sexist. People.
Whatever you say is already linked to an email account, in case you hadn’t noticed.
tutanota.com track that one biatch but your point is valid just irrelevant given the truly anonymous email systems available
Thank you and thank you for this excellent web site
I always drop by anyway.
