If, when subscribing, you get this error:
Different Address Needed
You cannot subscribe to this list with the email address you entered.
Please correct any mistakes in the address and try to subscribe again.
If you see this message again, please use a different email address to subscribe.
Then, unfortunately, you will need to use a different email address.
I’m told that this happens when you use “this is spam” instead of unsubscribing from a mailing list that you confirmed a subscription to.
Put more clearly, perhaps:
- At some point in the past you probably subscribed to a mailing list that uses the same list provider we do (Aweber).
- You confirmed that you wanted that subscription by clicking a confirmation link that was emailed to you.
- At some point thereafter you clicked on “This Is Spam”, or “Junk” to one of the mailings instead of unsubscribing.
I know of no way to “undo” this. This is actually one of the ways that our mailing list provider battles spam, believe it or not. By keeping the lists they host “clean” and confirmed-opt-in only then our mailings are much less likely to end up in people’s spam folder.
I apologize for the inconvenience, but there’s really nothing I can do.
