That is the spam I was referring to. I know you can turn off an individual piece of spam (after you have already seen it)... I was just wondering if you fixed it to where you separated the spam from the in-product notification like it should be. We all know that you can have product update notifications separate from "special offers from software partners". I see that you have chosen, still, not to fix that and not allow customers to opt out of the special offers spam.
That is all I was curious about. I made the switch last week to another virtualization tool that doesn't force-feed spam down their paying customers' throats. They don't even force it down their NON-paying customers' throats. I always liked PD, but I can't support practices like that. Fix that in a future release, let us all know that it has been fixed, and I'm sure we'll be back (I know I would be). But in the meantime, I gotta stick with the competitors who know better than to do that. Hopefully you'll one day come to your senses and treat your paying customers better than that.
Make two products... a paid product without the spam and a free product with the advertisements. That way it wouldn't be spam... it would be ad-supported software. You get revenue from both products and maybe even open up your software to more potential customers. But we all know it isn't ad-supported software if you have to pay for the software and you can't opt out of the ads... that is just spam.
I'm glad I asked before making the upgrade. I figured the silence was all the answer I needed, but wanted to be sure. Thanks for the reply.
