JohnWho.

Yes. Saw your post in another forum after I put mine in, but didn't think it would matter.

Cheers

Whats Spam?

I dont get any (im serious). I use the same theory as I do to avoid telemarketers. I setup a free account or buy a prepaid cell phone then give out the address or # only to people who need it. Once I get the first Spam message or Telemarketer I buy a new phone or setup an new account and send a message to the people who need my address or # to the new one then throw the old one away.

(I go through 2 phones and 1 email a year, have a total of 5 emails at a time though)

No problem,

unless, ironically, the board admin/mods think that two threads on the same topic is Spam!

forum spammers is what really pisses me off, sure you can delete posts and ban them but it does little good

complaining to their mail server is best, they rely on those email addie's to scam people, problem is hotmail, yahoo and others ignore complaints

gmail and some others actually take action

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
