ActiveRain Sponsored ADs?

By
Real Estate Agent with Maverick Realty

 Is ActiveRain sponsoring ads on our contact email's now?

I have noticed on a few of my contact emails today  (I haven't noticed it before, but it could have been happening and I just missed it) from activerain members that there are activeRain Sponsored Ad's appearing... here is an exact copy/example of what I am talking about.

 Is this happening on everyone's emails now?  Or am I just noticing it and it has been happening?? 

It starts like this......................................Here is an EXACT COPY with some words of the email xxx out to protect the innocent...... 

"You've received a contact message from your Contact Form on the ActiveRain network.

Message details:
From: Mike Frazier, Dyersburg Tn Real Estate
Email: mike@dyersburgrealestate.com
Subject: my new post

Are you still flying high after getting featured??

Could I xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

thank-you for your time and attention!

I saw that today too - it must be new.  My question is....why?  There are ads on the sight, why put an ad at the bottom of an email that is going to a member when we are already on here and can easily see the ads?

Vickie,

I don't think I have seen anything like this. I hope we don't start getting a bunch of junk. How is the new baby??

Becky~  I will send you a contact message in a minute and you will see the sponsored ad at the bottom of your message.  I am going to see my baby this weekend.  I am having "withdrawal" symptoms from not seeing and holding him!

Vickie,

I didn't have an ad on the bottom of my email. I got three different ones but no ads at all on the emails.

Vickie, I have the ads on the bottoms of my emails.  My comments get forwarded from one email to another and I wondered why they stopped being forwarded a couple days ago.  I realized these ads were on the bottom and I guess my email filtered it out as spam.

We got the same thing and it felt spammy. Perhaps they feel they need the revenue from this - but it feels like spam.

Duane~ I can understand that, it is just that I had just noticed it and was wondering if it was new or if I was just not observant :(
