What's with all those emails??!!

Some of our members have been receiving excessive emails from Widowed Village. We are so sorry for this annoying inconvenience. The issue has been reported to our hosting site (Ning) and we are hopeful it will be resolved soon.  If this influx of unwanted emails becomes intolerable, you may want to consider blocking the email address those messages are coming from until the issue is resolved. We'll post a note in this space once we know Ning has corrected this problem and you can remove the block.  We do plan to move Widowed Village to a new platform soon that will include some really nice improvements.  We appreciate your patience.
