Today, I was invited to join a new discussion group, about-translation.com. The chat will start next Saturday, 23.



This might be interesting, fo their are a lot of subjects to be discussed (in French and English).



However, I am intrigued how they got my mail address. I asked the question in a mail to the webmaster and Isabelle de Rose, a proZ member (recent) wrote back without answering the question, just inviting me again.



Have we all been invited to join?

Are our mail addresses traded?

Who and what is behind the site?



Any idea? Thanks.

Maya

Platinums can also invite non-platinums Feb 19, 2002

I have been invited to join yet another yahoo discussion group for translators set up by a ProZ Platinum member.

I also received it. This \"company\" (I don\'t know exactly what it is, so I\'ll call it this) has been advertising on sci.lang.translation and sci.lang.translation.marketplace for at least 2 weeks.



I wonder why the webmaster didn\'t reply to Maya\'s question about where she got her e-mail address. Odd.

No, Isabelle de Rose is not a platinum member.



I just wrote back and invited her to join this discussion, to explain what it is all about.

I have also been invited! Feb 19, 2002

Just to let you know my invitation came through an email address that I do not use very much; not the one I have for PROZ.com

the name of the "compahy" Feb 19, 2002

I guess that the \"company\" behind this new forum is \'e-traduit\' aka \'Triumph Management\', managed by William and Andrea Pillas (near Toulon, France).



I just don\'t understand why they don\'t say clearly who they are. Wait and see.

Invitation has nothing to do with ProZ Feb 19, 2002

We have all been \"targeted\" through our various memberships in yahoo groups. I use a special e-mail address just for these groups (so as not to clog my regular channels), and I have received this invitation through that separate e-mail address. So, ProZ is not involved.

Just to say that I got the invitation this morning... Haven\'t a clue about who they are, and how they reached me...

Will we get the answer some day? I doubt.

Or is it invitation-only?

I was also invited twice today. And I would like to invite all those who didn\'t get the mail (we called that gate-crashing when I was younger, but it was always fun!
