I checked the IP addresses. No need to worry Couloir... it's just Majid's other account.... wait, maybe there is a cause for concern. Unimpressed

I'm just kidding

Username favour4life? Yup - it sent me one too. We mods can't ban someone from PM, but I'm sure ddt will get rid of it next time he's online.

Is "Miss Favour" a title? Like "Miss America?"
Did she have to win a "favours" contest?

You're setting yourself up to get them in your gmail account too...

You have your email address posted "normally" on your PUBLIC profile... There are web crawlers that serach the net for email addresses just for spam, and you have yours up for all to see, and it is now likely on lots of lists because of this.

Put your address up like this:
so_in_so[at]whatever.com
you_2(at)thisplace.com

Or at least put spaces in... Ever notice how when you type in an email address the software makes it a "clicky" in word, or other programs? Because it recognizes it as an email address... Make your email address unrecognizable to a computer, but recognizable to a person.


Get it?

I do and I thank you! Although Google quickly tosses that out as spam.
