I haven't been here in a while & when I logged in I noticed I had a message in my inbox.  :mad: That in itself is highly unusual because I can count on one hand the number of times that's happened in years!  Curious, I opened it & didn't recognize the name, (zilandiabb), but even weirder was the pathetic sounding message that claimed she desperately wanted to be my friend, & to please respond.  I looked for the name in the members list & saw that it isn't listed which aroused my suspicion that maybe she was trying to con me out of something.  More than likely my money!  I wonder if anyone else here has had the same or similar message from this person?  And if so, to be wary about this.  I didn't bother to respond, but posted here instead.  The message was posted 4/25, for what that's worth--Kurt.

Yup, we.ve had a few posts like that, as noted in Jacque's blog. Let me know when they occur--I delete their memberships. 8)

Yip, I deleted her membership, she was spamming half the users in here. Most likely it was either a bot or a scam artist ... Unfortunetely these people exist in the world ....  If you ever get such messages just let cooter or myself know and well take care of it quickly.

The new Makululinux Xfce has its moods, but once you tame her she will treat you nice...
