Wow, there must be some lag time between when someone uses the referral link and when Dropbox awards the free space. After I removed my referral link yesterday, I received five more notifications! Thanks so much everyone!!! This is fantastic.
So have I. The weirdest thing is that someone used my referral link 7 weeks ago, when I'd never emailed the link to anyone or posted it anywhere! That person hasn't installed Dropbox, so I'm not sure I understand how that would happen.
