If not phishing, then bullshit.

Heh, I didn’t get shit. Gotta love that stuff.

It’s a phishing PM. He’s been dealt with.

Phishing is so phat.


Yeah. I suck.

No spam from/to my PC that I know of. In fact I just ran my antispyware recently.

What exactly is “phishing” anyway? (serious question.)

Running a website that looks like a legit website in order to steal your login and account information. (e.g. making a website that looks exactly like a banking website, sending out mass e-mails for people to “check their account” so people will try to login onto the phishing website, and then recording their banking info when they enter it)

They call it phishing because it is like fishing for passwords.

Yeahh, I figured it was fake when I looked at the address. :stuck_out_tongue: Thanks, Nul.^^
