The "Contact this team's members" option on the https://launchpad.net/~unity-design page needs to be removed

Asked by John Lea on 2012-04-04

Hi, the https://launchpad.net/~unity-design team that I manage currently has 815 members, including a large portion of Canonical employees. Recently people have started using the "Contact this team's members" option to send individual emails to all 815 people who are part of this team (this includes the entire design team at Canonical, the entire Product Strategy engineering team as well, etc...)

We have a number of appropriate forums for community members to contact us; the 'unity-design' mailing list, bug reports and comments, the 'unity-design' irc channel, ubuntu brainstorm, etc...

For the three years nobody seemed to notice the Launchpad "Contact this team's members" feature, however now it is starting to be abused. I hope you can disable the "Contact this team's members" link on https://launchpad.net/~unity-design asap before more of these emails are sent out.

thanks,
John

This was part of work done on launchpad which was blogged about to explain why it was done and when it was released . http://blog.launchpad.net/cool-new-stuff/contacting-teams-is-easier-and-more-reliable

This feature is there to help people who want to contact teams on launchpad who are not members but do still want to engaged with people.

Can you help with this problem?
