Redundant announcements in my e-mail

I understand being excited about the new K-01, I really do. And I understand sending an e-mail announcing it. But, I fail to see the need for two e-mails about it. I received one e-mail on 1 Feb at 23:06 with the subject "New Pentax K-01 Announced." And another one on 2 Feb at 06:27 with the subject "Pentax K-01 Live." Both e-mails contained the same link, to: Pentax K-01 Officially Announced - Pentax Camera News & Rumors -

As far as I can tell, there's really no different content in the 2nd e-mail, which came less than 8 hours after the first - did the situation change somehow in that short amount of time? Please try to keep the e-mails fresh, and don't just send me the same content over and over...

I get that. But why e-mail me the same thing twice in less than 8 hours? Is it that exciting?

So, if I understand this, what you're saying is Pentax Forums should only listen to suggestions from people with lots of posts? I can't have an opinion about what I want in my e-mail unless I'm a "veteran member," is that it?

That doesn't seem to jibe with "Friendly Pentax Camera Forum" so I'm sure I'm not understanding your meaning.

No, you made a somewhat snotty post about an insignificant issue that could have been a simple private email - and it wasn't even worth that.
