    Cool

    I talked with MooN and I can assure everyone that your email addresses have never been sold or used for any purpose.

    Spamers have written spam bots specially designed to extract email addresses from bulletin boards such as this one. The spam bots craw through posts and go to your profile where your email address is displayed and then harvested.

    An option to protect yourself against the spam bots would be to edit your preferences under the option “Keep your email address viewable to others when you post notes?” Set that option to “No” and the spam bots will not be able to harvest your email though your profile. Also make sure never to reveal your email in any posts or signatures or the spam bots will harvest it.

    An interesting fact, skinnyboy, is that I have been on this board 18 months and have 450+ posts.

    YOU have been here 5 months and have posted 770+ times

    I think Charles was the first to reach 700 and I'm sure it took him more that 5 months, and he has a lot to say (most of it pertains to MP3Car stuff, too)

    weeel...
    I don't know what to say, but I will say something anyway, (and not just to get my post count up) but so it looks like i am trying to defend myself, (although I have nothing to say, and that really isn't defending myself) and then there is the fact that I am writing my thoughts in quotes, which really puts me down.. (ohh well, maybe I should just shutup) (NAH!!!!)

    Cool

    I just want to add that signatures insulting other members are probably considered unacceptable.

    I have to agree with u here...skinnyboy only got to that # because every one almost lynched his ***

    yep it took me more than 5 months to get to 700 mainly because i am ALWAYS bussy coding. And thanks for noticing....now where is my present?
