You guys may or may not be happy about what I found, but I found it regardless and I don't know how I feel about it.
Now it's a very minor thing; it's not controversial, but it does raise some questions about how email services should be run.
Yeah, emphasis on email. Let me explain.
Recently I went into my current email account to do some cleaning (because, you know, inboxes will fill up after years of neglect), and I saw two test emails sent by
"Oh living [ BLEEP ], I had that one too!?" Said innocent me, now prompted to go to mail.com to try to fix the situation.
I logged on using an old password I had never bothered to change and right there, in the inbox, were three T-Games Network emails from two addresses.
And they were marked as read too! Why did I use the Future Team email to sign up to T-Games Network? Ah well. Let's re-read them to get a glimpse of the past.

Don't you know? I put my full trust in 'TGamesofficial' to give me confidential details about my registration!
- Hello Jaren,
This is the correct response.
- This is an email notification to inform you that your T-Games Network Account has been set-up!
...I couldn't tell from the text in the Subject. /s

Oh and to make sure you know about your account, we'll tell you everything about your account, Jaren.
- Your current T-Token Balance is 4T. More items will be available from the T-Token store within the next few weeks.
An indirect way of saying "can't redeem them now, sorry."
- Thank you for becoming a part of the T-Games Community!
-The T-Games Team
But I was already... oh nevermind.

You mean this isn't automated? What would happen if some ex-member decided to email you some harsh message? Recall the Tumblr RSS tactic I used in early 2014. Not a good thing to have.
I didn't want to cover them all, but they're all available for viewing in my OneDrive. Would I run a similar service? Well, right after I deleted the future team email, I noped out.
