Recently on one of the message boards here I read of the Learned Pig Project.
I visited the site, took a simple test, and posted my responses. The next day I received an email saying "Welcome to the Learned Pig Project" which appeared to come from email@example.com
. It listed a number of email addresses of which mine was one. When I clicked 'Reply' I noticed that the 'reply to' address was firstname.lastname@example.org
. I sent an email to that address asking if there was any information on how to access the project since there was none in the message... only the email addresses of a few dozen people including myself.
Four days later and still no reponse. More annoying is the fact that since then my private email address has received unsolicited commercial email (SPAM) from someplace called Remote Control Magic Company.
Either the Learned Pig is selling email addresses or one of the other email addresses in the email I received used that email to gather names for a mass mailing.
So my reason posting is two fold.
1. I would recommend against signing up for TLPP unless you use a webmail address you don't mind having spammed.
2. Is there anyone who knows what's up with TLPP who can explain how to access it's information?
