    I'm not really coming across very well to you am I bd ?

    I'm just an exceptionally blunt cunt, and it seems to come across badly on the interweb, I suspect the lack of facial expressions and body language is a big part of that. I was smiling really... true story like

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that it's neither actually from the FST-staff, and nor would you have gotten it if your email address hadn't been made public.


    Obviously, I can't say that for certain without seeing the originating address and other information, though.

    You do know that anyone can go and look at your address through your contact page, right?
    Assuming it's the one you use for msn.

    You say that, but there's a great big giganews link at the top of the screen, so maybe this has come from Brian or something, I don't know

    I haven't had any spam, by the way.

    smtp can be kinda' insecure, and mail addresses are still spoofable sometimes (we used to do that on purpose at work, using a non-existing address for mail that wasn't meant to be replied to), but in combination with that ad it doesn't look good at all.

    tessco or someone better start explaining.

    Not that I've gotten any spam, but even so.
