Yeah, we don't exactly score 10 out of 10 for making this super-easy. The way to do so is to download any of our plugins and opt in when doing so – which has the benefit of giving you another awesome plugin to play with BUT it may not be immediately obvious (though we DO have that info on the SUBSPACE page as well as the NEWS (front) page...). We keep wanting to allocate more time to making the website cooler but then there's only 24 hours to a day and our stuff takes a lot of time to develop – lots of research, lots and LOTS of QA listening and tweaking etc.
A generic newsletter subscribe page is in the works though, and it's not rocket science...but it does take a lot of testing etc to make it rock solid and secure. Now that kind of stuff would
be much easier if we were to work with a third party that then deals with all the email stuff for us and in return gets all the user data....hmmm...naaaah, we'll stick with the simpler website I'd say.

I'm sorry but you completely lost me there
Who's talking about punishing anybody? And what would that "punishment" be exactly? Ah maybe we can bombard you with "angry" smilies on kvr
Seriously though, we're not mad. We don'l LIKE the circumvention bit, though we do like the *interest* that shows (a lot, actually).
We just want accurate information out there, depicting the official, clean
way how to get what I feel is an absolutely awesome plugin, instead of people finding a "hack" method first when googling and using that , thinking it was legit...
For those that actively choose to circumvent knowing
it is a "hack"...I'll request you honor your part of the deal we're offering. "The deal" being straight forward: get the newsletter, get the plugin. I fail to see how that makes me a bad guy, btw
None of this BTW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpE_xMRiCLE
Feel the newsletter sucks after getting one of the maybe 3 per year? Go for it and unsubscribe. Feel like we "tricked" you? Unsubscribe right after getting the plugin. <tongue in cheek mode> But who knows whether we are one of those companies that sends out exlcusive new stuff to their loyal followers every now and then, like maybe a free reverb (that sounds like da' BOMB!)....there SEEMS to be a precedent for that kind of thing, hmmm....</tic>
