Makes me want to shoot Facebook.

I'm getting flooded with emails.

I turned off the notifications. Still wasn't enough so I "left group". It's worse than "you know you're from...."! Thing is, this one won't go away. People will ALWAYS have crap to sell.

You can stop ALL notifications by clicking on the Edit Settings button when you're on the group page, then select "Notify me when 'only posts I am subscribed to'". Unless you actually subscribe to a post, you won't be notified when others post.

You have to edit your notification settings to stop the email notices.

So what's the scoop on this yard sale and the Halifax County Bulletin board, while we're at it.
I don't get notifications because I don't sign up for this mess.

Looks like it's an internet yard sale, people post items for sale and you should be able to contact them easily to purchase items locally

I am getting flooded w e mails and the dang thing shows up as a chat box seemingly every 5 seconds, yet I am not on the group page! Oh well, I know HT is not a trouble shooting spot for Facebook, right, DT? :-)

To the right of the page is an option "leave group". Or at the top of the age, there is a blue button that says "edit notification settings" or something like that.

Confession...this one is my fault. I am the one who added you to the group, so I am the one who is now publicly apologizing. I didn't mean it to be an evil thing. Embarassed

GeeZ, thanks.
I had about 175 emails to delete. I opted out of "the group". Hope that is the end of that.

I had to leave to. I had 130 emails in about 8 hours. It's a good idea, but can you just go to a site and look at the items?

Hahaha!! It was a very nice thing for you to invite everyone. Honestly. It's just that you have to be able to turn off the notifications in time, before they drive you bonkers! Lol

I, too, found myself with about a hundred extra email messages to sort through after being included in the Facebook group. It only took me about five minutes to delete all of the extra messages and to turn off the Facebook group email notifications. No harm done... and I did see some interesting things being offered for sale! Plus, now that I have a steady job I can afford to buy stuff again. Woo Hoo!

Great to hear. What you doing? I 'assume' from reading another thread, it involves a lot of walking?
