Hi @Cricitem - thanks for the reply!
The issue is that the method chosen has to unfortunately be the worst possible way to fufill that purpose and it would be 1000x more effectively resolved by a simple double opt-in system and removal of the unsubscribe link altogether.
If anyone is seriously using webflow as a mass spam client I propose they are not destined to be a hacker or an email marketer for that matter For the one or two users that are abusing the policy simply block them from the platform as would be permitted in the terms and conditions of use.
In the current implementation:
- A client forwards a contact form to their colleague, or replies to the site visitor. That person clicks unsubscribe and the client is unsubscribed. Unless you are paid 24/7 to watch for such notifications it is reasonable to expect this will cause lost emails.
- Most people in the world who aren’t web designers logically see a spam form submission come in and would think to unsubscribe from it, not realizing the effect this has until business critical communication has been lost.
- Webflow charges for a white label solution for developers and teams. The link goes straight to webflow.
- Until the switch was added to turn it off, forms just started sending clients webflow advertising and email limits without warning. The same happened when this unsubscribe link was implemented in the first place. In general there are many people that pay a lot of money for an advertised white label solution and a single breach of branding in such a direct medium undercuts the value of a designers service offering. In general there is unfortunately a wider lack of respect for designer + client relationships when it comes to the control of client facing communications. Personally, I have so little trust that I did opt for a third party solution to handle email for larger clients but this still needs to be resolved for smaller end clients, and other members of the webflow community. Not to mention if ever e-commerce notifications are to ever become secure
