Quote from: Arantor on February 27, 2023, 01:28:21 PMI assume they also understood that notifications wouldn't work, nor would newsletters, nor would bans, at least not properly.
Quote from: Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen on February 27, 2023, 08:39:16 AMthis kind of usage could actually even be illegal in some jurisdictions.

Quote from: Kindred on February 27, 2023, 08:44:54 PMThere are a lot of issues within SMF that would have to be changed to remove emails. So, yes, this is rejected as a feature request. We will not do it... legal issues aside, it would require a major rewrite of ALOT of code... for a request that has one, maybe two, people who want it.

Quote from: Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen on February 27, 2023, 11:50:18 PMthere are places and situations where forums, chats, etc. are legally obligated to require registration and provide moderation, for example to provide protection to minors online.

Quote from: Random Username on March 01, 2023, 11:43:06 PMPersonally, I think the forum emailing people is spam. I don't see a problem with those broken features, for my sites. I'm going to tell my developer to do it.
