Some spam email collector has recently crawled TWG. Which I know because i got an email addressed to [email protected], which I only ever posted here. I wish these people would get more creative. It was "from" [email protected], and the message was just "All the information is in the attached file. Which might have worked if I believed there was a human somewhere responding to requests on that email.... Oh, and that I had actually ASKED MS for anything at all in the last 6 years and I believed they would send me a file with a .pi extention with no other explanation.

Supid virus coders. Why must they be morons?

This is a good reminder for everyone. While TWG doesn't sell or spam email addresses, we do get crawlers running across the site at regular intervals. I've put some apache filters in to watch for the most well-known ones, but with the internet, you can never really keep up. Make sure you're only using an email that you don't mind having thrown around spam lists.

Hrm... i have my address hidden, but a opportunity presents itself...

Does the Pope have a email address?
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)
