    I haven't received any "Please give me your bank account..." emails in years, but I just received one today that is of a completely different sort. It's of the "personals" nature.:eek:

    The "New- Personal page...." is a hyperlink which of course I did not click on. And I didn't write back to say that I wasn't the man of her dreams, either.:wink:

    Have any of you received this type? Generally, I don't get much junk email.

    I'm sure its a very sincere and genuine plea from a lonely lady looking for love!!
    Or then again it could be the Russian maffia attempting to separate you from your money, your house and your life!

    I did like-
    But a Pebble of the brook
    But, since the state has all your cares ingross'd

    Strangely poetic for spam - though ingross'd is new to me and to the lady in question I suspect.

    Paul the spell ends with the word D I V O R C E!

    Bill, there may be uses for the metric system... But SAE is certainly sexier....
