An associate left our firm today so all the personnel he sponsored were removed. Each of these 80+ people received a confirmation of removal. I can appreciate the reason for sending the notification is to allow personnel working with each other to confirm erroneous removals, however, personnel in large firms such as ours expect there to be a reason for changes such as these and need not receive these types of emails.
Since the email is from the USPTO, many will stop what they are doing to immediately review. Not a bad practice, but unnecessary for notifications such as these.
Please consider adding options to opt-out of certain types of notifications to our USPTO.gov account settings.
