With the recent boost in activiy on the group, I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone that each of YOU have the ability to control how much email you receive from Papercreters.
At the bottom of this message are detailed step by step instructions that will allow you to change settings on your Papercreters account which can dramatically impact the number of email messages you receive.
If the quantity of email you are getting from the group is a concern to you, please be sure to read the message below.
