So you're saying by me actually answering them I'm actually making it worse given it's being sold to people who spam you even more? I didn't think of that one. Even more reason to stop... Thanks for the advice guys.
You're welcome. :)

This is a new one and one of the few not caught by the Gmail Spam filter:

Notice he was smart enough to use the BCC column of the email address so it can be sent to many but
looks like an individual email to each of the potential suckers who will hopefully act on this.

I just received this email and thought I'd share it with everyone.
This is another attempt to steal your information. Be careful and don't respond:

I especially like the last sentence in the email. :)

Maybe these creeps know I'm constantly looking for new material to share at my presentations. :)
I just wish I had the time to play some games with them. :)

It's a problem with this forum since it's come back it no longer functions properly when you need to use
"Show WYSIWYG editor on post page by default." in the forum layout.

As soon as you quote someone else's post that has smileys, etc. in their post, it converts it to display in WYSIWYG in the editor because you have that option enabled.

Not a problem if you haven't got that option set (default), you don't get the code.
but why is it only you   ???
