But as with most things that are based on computer technology, you have to take the previous statement with a grain of salt.
You trust or you don't. And to subscribe, which means you'll recive updates via email, will require you to put in an email that you must respond to.
Its your choice. And if you don't want to receive updates - just bookmark the site and vist when the feeling takes you.
