I subscribed for some newsletters yesterday. I got some of them today, 2 of which arrived twice:

  • IT Security Weekly Newsletter - Tuesday, August 2, 2011
  • Personal Productivity Weekly Newsletter - Tuesday, August 2, 2011

That's it. I hope this isn't a duplicate bug. :P

This bug seems to have affected a few other people too, one of whom is in the office. We're investigating what went wrong -- sorry about the dupe emails :( – Emmett Aug 2 '11 at 17:38
Does your account have multiple registered OpenIDs? – M. Tibbits Aug 2 '11 at 18:18
@M. Tibbits could be, i'm not really sure. Do you know a way to check that information? – Gonzalo Serrano Aug 3 '11 at 17:07
Nope. Sorry. I'm not an all powerful mod. You might send an email to team (at) and ask if they've got more than one OpenID registered to your account. – M. Tibbits Aug 3 '11 at 19:21

A small subset of newsletters were sent twice, but sadly, after investigating, we're still unclear on why.

We've added a last-second dupe-thwarting check, as well as more extensive logging around our newsletter-sending code. So, hopefully, this bug won't re-surface, but if it does, we'll have more tools at our disposal while debugging.

Sorry again about the extra emails.

No worries, GMail is smart enough to stack them ;) – Gonzalo Serrano Aug 3 '11 at 17:07
