Im not sure why its being ignored!
    For now we will put all our efforts in sorting out the problems and keep fighting spam as always ^^. AnswerHub spam is sometimes hard t spot due to the amount of legitimate messages so if you see some just report it and we'll get it removed.

      Yup thats cool but my number one concern right now is the personal information which Epic have for all of us, spam I can handle but if this situation continues to escalate it wont be long before spam is used for a cover to launch a real attack.


      This just feels to me like raptors testing the fences!

          UPDATE!

          Hey all! I wanted to give an update here. The great folks over at GitHub have added an exception to our organization to ignore the "Automatically watch repositories" flag on accounts in order to avoid this in the future. You should no longer see unwanted notifications on new repos that are set up that grant you access.

          Thanks for hanging in there with us!

            It really shouldn't have happened in the first place, but thanks for getting it resolved! It's nice not waking up to over 100 emails.

              Could it be that this is happening again? I've been subscribed to at least 5 new forks today, all of which seem to have immediately been deleted again, as the github link only shows a 404.

                    Same, this is really annoying.
