    How do you know they are spam, who are they from and what are they saying, or do you know they are spam because they are offering you Sports Rolex at list price 😂

    Did you say something disparaging about a G-Wagen and a dodgy number plate?

    Hmmm, I haven't received any either. I wonder how the spam sender determines which members are in his target market???

    I must recieve about 50 emails a day, the vast majority, of which, are complete and utter tosh. One extra makes no difference.

    I've deleted all the PMs. banned him and added details to the "Stop Forum Spam" database. He managed to send 50 PMs before I banned him.

    So, I was one of the lucky 50. Do I win a prize?

    But it wasn't an email, it was a personal message sent through the forum.

    Oh I had one of them a few weeks ago from Henk. I told me that he considered me "toxic". It sort of cheered me up actually.

    email address for Conradbaw ?

    Hi again,

    I assume this person used an email when signing up ? Is it possible this could be made known to us all so we could send him our thanks ?

    No point, it would just be a throwaway account. Sending yet more spam in retribution regrettably doesn't reduce the problem.

    I realised that, but worth a try, miles better than just lying down and giving in

    Sadly, it's actually counterproductive. It just means that there's more useless crap floating around the email systems, which means that the servers/systems/networks/resources involved need to keep growing in size. And guess who ends up paying for that...
