So, I wake up this morning to find that my e-mail has been hacked and people are getting e-mails to enlarge their penis size. REALLY???? I'm not the only one of my friends that's had this problem and now I know why it's so annoying. Some folks get really mad at you. As though I would ever send spam to my friends! Good grief! I really wonder just what the hackers get out of this. Do they really think people will just click on an unidentified link? I think I've got the problem fixed now...I hope. If any of you got one of these e-mails, I'm really sorry.

Not to worry, but it was rather odd...

As to why people do this, becuase they can and they're dicks... for some that's enough...

Trust me, there are people who will click on an unidentified link.

They might be genetically related to the people who hack.

That is annoying. For some reason, the server at Raspberry World keeps getting spammed with viagra emails....

Well, I clicked on the link, once; it was about Viagra and a Canadian pharmaceutic company. I clicked three times (because I'm with Linux), still the same. then I put all the other similar messages to my spam box, with the result all your future messages will go there now! Not really surprised; it happened to me long ago...

It happens. I never blame the hackee...

But I did block your emails because so many were coming. Now that it's fixed, I'll unblock you.

Thanks. Someone on the list was rather annoyed with me and asked that I remove her from my contact list. I did. I guess she didn't understand that I didn't start the mess. :z

*red face* I clicked the link in the first one - never thought twice about it, 'cuz it was (supposedly) from you! God, when will I learn not to click anything until I am sufficiently caffeinated?

Trust me, there are people who will click on an unidentified link.

They might be genetically related to the people who hack.

Hah! I think I better put my Billy Bob Buckteeth in:)

*G* The only reason I know not to click on these things is that we've had a rash of e-mail hackers among my close friends.
