For some reason I received two emails saying that i had uploaded files to a site called sendspace.com

here is the email:

sendspace.com file upload confirmation for depboyjr@cox.net

You have successfully uploaded a file called The Bolivian Connection.rtf (1 KB), to sendspace.

A notification with the download link was sent to: dep*****@cox.net

I got the exact same thing so I don't think it was just your email address... :shock:

It's kinda like that Cluedome thing a while back.

Strange..... :?

Well, since I'm new not yet... But if the description was 'Cluedo' then someone must've known Depboy from somewhere. Maybe even from here.

But who would take the time to e-mail it to every member? Unless they don't have a life. Lol.

You guys may want to hide your email addresses.

I don't usually display my e-mail on forums, etc. I did that once and I was bombarded by junk mail from Viagra. :lol:

I never display my e-mail address; the last thing I want is to be constantly bombarded with e-mails along the lines of, "Congratulations! You've won a free trip to Hawaii! All you need to do is give us your credit card number and we'll cover it!"
Anyone who thinks Canadians are meek and mild-mannered has obviously never seen us during Question Period!

I got an email from Brian, but not like a sendspace thing, and actual message. He wanted me to play one of the forum games for him since he had been banned from the boards. I told him I barely had time to read everything on the forums, let alone play one of the games. Then he told me he was "desperate" to play, so I told him if he was so desperate to play, he could simply get a new email address and register as a new user.

I'm assuming he hasn't taken my advice. Good.

I assume the game was the Game of Clue? Pathetic

I keep getting emails from Mr. James Porter suggesting that I or my mother is a *****. Little does he know that I enjoy getting them. They make me laugh. I find his pathetic-ness sad, but his persistence in his email tirades quite amusing.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

James Porter... who is that? A shaving cream salesman? The postman's brother? :P
