CBA E-mail #6: New Blogs, Friendly Competition, Email Form

To: -- Cubs Blog Army --

Subject: CBA Email #6: New Blogs, Friendly Competition, Email Form

Greetings Cubs Blog Army!

I'm sorry that I have been stuffing folks inboxes the last few days, but I needed to send out a test email of the newly revised form, plus its about time for a CBA update, so I combined the two.

First, spring training starts this week... Finally!

Second, we have some new blogs since the last time I emailed out one of these:

14 Days of Ambivalence:
Die-Hard Cubs Fun:
The Business of Baseball:
Bleed Cubbie Blue:
The Cubbie Corner:
Chicago National League Ball Club:
Cubs Obsessed:

That would be seven new blogs in the last 10 days. I wanted to make special mention of Bleed Cubbie Blue, which is Al Yellon's new blog. I know there have already been about three emails sent out about it, but go check out Al's new digs.

Otherwise, with our new additions, the CBA stands at 72 total blogs, 45 of which get updated pretty much weekly or better, and another handful that I expect will wake up from an offseason of hibernation in the next few weeks.


A request for people interested in fantasy baseball went out with the last update, I'm going to turn over the list of folks interested around Monday at 5 p.m. Central time. Please email me before then if you are interested, otherwise it may be too late. YOU CAN'T MISS OUT ON THESE BRAGGING RIGHTS!

Joe at View From the Bleachers sent out an email this morning looking for participants in an NCAA tourney pool. Unless you are a college football coach, now's the time to get in. I don't think there will be anything but bragging rights on the line. All you Illini punks out there better be signing up. email if you are interested.

Finally, as has been alluded to a few times and an email was already sent out, you can now email the CBA by visiting the CBA site and clicking on the link: email the CBA.

After my first email, I found a few problems, got some addresses bounced, etc. So I fixed the script and things should work better now. Incidentally, this email may be the first time some of you hear about the email list for that reason. Hi Mike.

OK, also, I got another email from a longtime CBA member worried about spam security, here is what I wrote him back about how the form is set up. If you wish to be excluded from the form, I will take you off.

---> I have taken a few steps to avoid having this list spammed.

First, it isn't a single address that someone could send something too. It is everyone's individual address.

Second, the addresses are all hidden. The email is BCC to everyone on the list, so when you 'reply all' or try to see who else received the email, you can't (incidentally, I am the only one who got your reply.)

Finally, any email sent through this script has a message identifying that it was sent through the form, so if it gets spammed even once, I will delete the script. Once the script is gone, the spammer would need everyone's address, which they can't get because it is hidden in the BCC field.

I can't guarantee that there will be no spam, but I can guarantee I'll remove the script as soon as there is one.

If you still don't want to be on the form, or on the CBA list in

general, thats cool. I'll take you off one or both.


OK, so if you want off the list, email me. Until later,

Go Cubs,

Byron Clarke


If this is your first CBA update, I have recently added you to the list. If you would like this to be your last CBA update, please email me at and I will promptly remove you from my list.

This email was sent from the 'Email the CBA' form...
