Turning off the email subscription

When I moved to this platform, I turned on its email subscription feature. When I posted something, a subscriber would get an email from a @writeasletters.com address. A regular email address, instead of a “no-reply” address.

However, I just found out that, as of current platform capability, if a subscriber reply to the email, then the reply actually never reaches me. And both the subscriber and I would not know.

And supposedly this was by design.

I think this is counter-intuitive. At the very least, they could have sent an email bounce.

This is not the user experience I like, so I am turning off the email subscription. If you subscribed in the past, my apologies for the inconvenience.

If they improve this someday, maybe I will turn it back on.
