It's a fine line for sure; in my experience there are indeed enthusiastic newbies who figure Grateful Dead, right? Where the streets are lined with mind-altering substances, right? They do kinda need a reality check, but they're clueless rather than evil. I think you're perfectly correct that law enforcement and other agencies might also think there are easy pickings here, and hey for all I know they're right.

But then you get your garden variety spammers and scammers too.

As a wise man said, watch each card you play and play it slow.

Thanks, marye...

and apologies for the outburst. The happy relationship thing did not really bother me as much as the moron looking for goodies. As much of a Luddite as I am, even I know that the only two types of people doing that on the net are either law enforcement or dumbasses. I was pretty sure I was dealing with the latter, but in this online world, one never knows and I wanted to make it absolutely clear that I'm not participating in something that could get myself or this site in trouble. It was irritating.

I do need to remember to cool it before I start typing though. Sorry.
That was a lot of f-bombs.

And thanks, Randall and Mike, for helping to keep it light.

hey slo

we get those scammers in search of happy relationships every now and then. If you get one, feel free to forward it to me; in the most recent instance of the lovely African woman, I deleted her account after I got one of her spams, on the notion that this would keep the spams from getting any worse. Sorry to everyone who gets these things; it's life on the net. But like I say, lemme know if you get bothersome messages of this sort and I'll deal with it. Thanks.

They look as innocent as newborn lambs. The sick fucks.
