moderated Re: +subscribe address is a black hole if email address is banned #suggestion #bug


Well, without a notice they would just be left wondering, think something went wrong, keep on waiting futilely, just keep trying, email the group owner, etc. I think they deserve the information. Banned members are not necessarily 'bad people' who don't deserve any heads up or communication. They just don't belong in a particular group, for whatever reason.

Bug: A banned email address
sending an email to +subscribe
If they
do send an email, it should be logged in the group and the email address
should receive a notice that they can't join because they're banned. Neither
of those now happens - both sides are left in the dark.
A banned person is left in the dark - good I think. Receiving a notice can nudge the undesirable person to use another email address. I'm against sending a notice. But I'd like all messages to +subscribe to be logged with the text like "emailed to +subscribe (not confirmed yet)".
