Default SOA COVID-19 Emails?

For some reason, I'm getting emails from the SOA that seem like forum/reddit posts about COVID-19. Is anyone else getting these? Anyone know what they are?

Me, too. I'm guessing we (or SOA) have something set up to send us daily digests from their discussion board.

I think they are from the SOA's Engage site (https://engage.soa.org/). I was getting them too, then I went in and unsubscribed. The SOA seems to have subscribed everyone to the COVID-19 section of the forum.

I also get them. I'm not sure why. I believe they are posts at https://engage.soa.org/home, in a section of that called the All Member COVID-19 community. I haven't posted anything there.

Its' been around for at least a few years. I never unsubscribed. I just assumed nobody had been posting anything until now.

This.

I had posted a few times, a long time ago, but it was as dead as the SOA's prior attempts at making a discussion forum.

It does look like some of the threads are a bit active now.

Thanks everyone. It makes me really uncomfortable that the SOA will just sign me up for something and I cannot even leave the group. At least I turned off the emails.

Ah sorry just realized you unsubscribed from the emails but wanted to leave the group as well. Yeah I don't know how to leave the group.
