We serve currently over 4,200 members with information about pumping and
diabetes. Unfortunately nothing is free. We are a non-profit organization
and are not controlled or influenced by any outside group or company. We
get no money from the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation or the ADA. Therefore,
the costs of running this website and mail service has to come from
someplace. Michael restricts himself to quarterly pledge breaks... probably
less than your local Public Broadcasting station has. There is no paid
staff here, just a bunch of volunteers.
The amount of mail is dependent on the questions and responses from our
members. We assume that if there is a lot of mail, then there is a lot of
information being exchanged. It is true, that not everything being
discussed will be relevant to your specific situation. There is no way we
can customize the system to present just the discussions each user wants to
see. However, there is also an advantage to this, since sometimes members
may realize that something they thought was irrelevant really does have
value in their lives. There isn't one of us that knows it all and we can
always learn something new.
If you want to reduce the volume of mail just write to
HELP@insulin-pumpers.org and ask for either the Digest or Browser versions.
If you still want to unsubscribe, this same address can help you with that
