I don't think so.  It wasn't a phishing trip because there was nothing on the email or the link it took me to trying to link me to somewhere else or asking for info.  Just the single page of posts about Laptop for daughter from 23Jun08.

Yep, I remember going to that link from an email as well.  Kinda threw me off too.  Spammers sure are somewhat irritating.

I can't stand 'em but they just keep a'coming. I'm been thinking about locking down registration or updating to a version of this software that at least uses a white list.

Would you have to approve all registrations that way?

Yep, but then we haven't had any new blood in a LONG time, don't think I'd be overrun.

Maybe we need a contest or lottery or something to attract some new blood. Or maybe layoff the garlic for a while...

One of the best things about the Internet is the anonymity.
One of the worst things about the Interest is the anonymity.

Spammers can spam with little worry of repercussions. Or other people..which reminds me of something I read a few days back:

Maybe the Internet is a lot like Adams said about the Constitution? "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." -- John Adams

Except that it's a smaller platform you could say the same about back fences. Of course it's a little more serious than gossip but still...

Karl, well said:
"One of the best things about the Internet is the anonymity.

That is actually an encouraging story in that the "bad guys" were tracked down.

The plus with a back fence is that it's not anonymous, might be hidden, but there are always two people who know who said what.
