    I haven't had the usual Max Newman messages for some time.
    Is it my computer, or has xtra stopped them please?

    Funny ... I was just wondering about that a couple of days ago. I
    wonder if Max has got the chop as part of Xtra's ongoing effort to
    "improve" service to customers?

    They're probably in spam folders in the Webmail. That would be too funny!

    That's where I found my "Welcome to Yahoo-Xtra Bubble" email. So
    anything's possible ...

    Do you actually miss them. They are just advertising.

    After a while, when I was with Xtra, I just deleted them unread.

    I found them very interesting, always something new.

    I find that there is so much out there on the interweb that I want to read
    but don't have the time to read already. I have to keep deleting bookmarks
    that I've made in my "When I get around to it" folder all the time. I found
    Max's stuff to be rather, ummm, less urgent and compelling than the links
    I'd already gathered from other sources. Although, that said, there were one
    or two that I did look at from time to time.

    Cheers,

    I usually found something new and worth following up on whenever I
    read Max's newsletter. But I thought the content and readability went
    downhill when Xtra changed the format. As usual, Xtra got it wrong.
    Idiots!

    When I was with Xtra, I marked them as spam...

    I suspect that the reason for the messages stopping has something to do with
    the Anti-Spam legislation that came into force on September 5.

    The last one which I received was nearly 5 months ago, on Sunday 15 April 2007.

    The last one posted on Xtra's website is dated 5th November 2006.

    See http://xtra.co.nz/cool and read the title bar, not the date
    inside the page which will always show today's date.
