Anyone here who has access to the GMC should let the YYG staff know they are making the same mistake people complained about for the marketplace with their new player.

When the marketplace was launched, people found out the devs of assets are getting the email adresses of everyone who downloads or buys their assets. When the YYG staff got the complaint they fixed that by swapping the emails listed with astericks (*) instead for each character.

But now that they lauched the new player, they did the same exact thing. I don't know why, maybe it's a legal issue? Nonewtheless, just like it was discussed on the GMC about the marketplace, likewaise should be discussed about the new player.

So anyone here who isn't banned from the GMC like I am should probably start a topic over there regarding this major privacy issue.

TKG I think they've made this perfectly clear that their EULA allows this and all ur emails r belong 2 YoYo

This is technically a form of phishing which is also against their own EULA, ironically.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

I don't think that word means what you think it means.
