Why do the links in email alerts about replies go through “awstrack”? Why do we have to (accept to) be tracked when we want to open the discussion in a browser window in order to react to the reply?
I can’t be the only one who has an ad blocker that blocks awstrack…
@LWinterberg can shed some light on this. As you probably already know, you can just use the email as an alert there is a reply to your post - just go to the forum and click on “My Posts” to read it.

Well, yes, that’s how I reply now. But that’s even more overhead than clicking through uBlock’s warnings.
Ideally it would be possible to reply to the email alert and post that way - like we’d be able to do on github
I’ll look into this. In principle, the forum can support reply-by-email but it needs to be configured. I agree that the aws tracking isn’t necessary.

Thanks, I appreciate that!
