  • Tobias Gondrom raises issue brought to leaders-list from Achim
    • There is a question from Achim Hoffman about user tracking features in our connector.
    • Dear all, why does OWASP send mails to its community which only contain tracking links instead to ? Do we (OWASP) need to be tracked by others when visiting ourself? Why are we forced to use * when we want to go to I want to receive the "OWASP Connector" mail, but never opted in at foreign sites. No offence meant according the idea that others (wether persons, companies or organisations) helping OWASP to do whatever. But this mail looks phishy (I believe it's not ;-) As OWASP is about bringing awareness to everyone, i.e. about phishing mails, social engineering, etc. how should we explain our audience that we don't follow our advices ourself? Wondering, Achim
