Which languages can I use in the Norton Forums?

Welches sind die Änderungen in diesem Build?

  • Korrekturen für die folgenden Fehler:
    • Ein Fehler der besagt "Fehler: Eine Verbindung zum Server ist nicht herstellbar. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal. (8)"
    • Ein Vorfall, bei dem der VPN Toggle Schalter zeitweise nicht reagiert. Es gab keine Reaktion, wenn der Schalter auf EIN geschalten war.
    • Ein Verbindungsfehler, bei dem das Produkt bei 'Verbinden' stehen blieb, die Verbindung wurde aber nicht hergestellt.

I have been receiving an inordinate number of email messages as of late from Norton in various foreign languages. English not being my primary language, I had always been under the impression that I could not use my primary language in the Forums and I needed to use the English language when posting a message in the English Forum. Actually, I seem to recall that some other user was specifically advised to avoid the English Forum if she wanted to post something in a different language, be it French, Portuguese or Chinese...

Recently, however, I keep receiving from Norton what seems to be announcements in various languages, other than English and I wonder what purpose is this procedure supposed to serve. I guess there must be a good reason, I just don't see it. I am raising this issue not out of the blue, but for the good reason that I have always been trying to limit the amount of spam that reaches my email account, but I still did not figure a way to avoid receiving these messages from Norton, short of cutting off all Update Announcements from Norton in any language, which I don't intend to do. If the trend sticks, I already vision my Inbox getting filled with flowery decorations such as messages in exotic character languages like Greek, Russian, Arabic... or worse!... 

A friend of mine calls this "official spam"... I can see his point but still refuse to go that far. I would be satisfied if Norton either finds a way of avoiding this indiscriminate dissemination of announcements in foreign languages in forums dedicated to one specific language OR provides the users who would rather not receive them a way to keep these messages away while still receiving the announcements in a language that is both provided by Norton and meets the user's preferences. As shown above, receiving 6 (six) different messages today alone (January 21, 2019) in one language that I can hardly identify, let alone understanding it, for much that one would like to be accommodating, it is very annoying, to say the least. If there is a way to avoid them without losing the ability to receive all other useful messages, by all means, please let me know!

Many thanks and

Only wished to edit but already too late, to add that the number of "spam" messages I received TODAY alone from Norton in this language just raised to 7 (seven!!!)… I have better things to do, including my job!... Please, have mercy!...


P.S. - Now reediting to add one more update (not sure if this will be the last one today, though): Still one more lovely message... in the same language, of course. It's know 8 (eight) and counting...  

P.P.S. - Yeah, it was not the last one. Just received one more. It's now 9 (nine) and counting...

I have asked for some official word for this thread, your other thread in Forum Feedback, and for a number of other threads. 

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: Which languages can I use in the Norton Forums?

Thanks, peterweb. I wonder which one is more disappointing - this ridiculous procedure from Symantec or their deafness/blindness to our help requests... They come across to me as quite unmoved by the "sufferings of the masses"...

Anyway, many thanks for your efforts

...And, as I said, I do appreciate your efforts. Your efforts and your involvement (and probably of others' as well) are what makes the statements I made in my last post that more appropriate.

Now, here goes one more sample of my today's "exciting fresh news" when I open my email account:

They may even, if they felt like it, to be insulting me, for heavens' sake!

(I must add that this is the first one I received in what? Japanese, perhaps, or Chinese?)
