Perhaps our overlords didn't want what appears to be a bit of a hack known to the members of forum.

Now, I wonder what will happen to this thread!

Pete:

Spam is exactly that: "SPAM."

Forwarding it (or any contents within) to any message board, or other computer address is just plain nuts! That would include just copying and pasting the contents.

The idea is to prevent the dissemination of spam, not to widen its distribution, which is exactly what the spammers want.

Happy (SPAM-free) RRing,

Jerry

Dang!
You get love!
I get the FBi verifying a sweepstakes win using my isp email addy!
But I need to send the fbi a $650 fee, a small price for millions. Official looking letter head, can I barrow the moola?

Love you long time.

Lucky

Totalwrecker, you can barrow the moola when the hyperinflation is done.
I will be fine though. My good friend the doctor from Nigeria is transferring millions of unclaimed government dollars into my bank account. Should be here any day now. I will give you some if you give my your bank account details...

Dang-

We're all having good luck today. I had a phone call on my cell that said I won a free cruise. Then I got another call that said my credit card rate is about to expire. GULP.... O' wait I haven't had a credit card in years.

O' well, I'll wait for another email that informs me I have a large inheritance to claim

I sent you a PM Pete that the perp was banned and your thread (no longer revelant) was deleted. Why are you griping?

Jeeze, there's enough spam in the world that "sharing" it for fun is not necessary. (And not everyone's definition of "fun" either)

Virtually every forum in the world has rules against replying to, or even acknowledging spam.

I'm griping because I didn't get your PM. And you know I don't like censorship. Why can't you leave the thread but insert a 'contents deleted' message after you remove my PM ?

And yes, BNSFconductor, it was the same PM.
