LOL yea, gotta love those kinds of spam messages. I ignore them.  Most of the time, I read them just to be amused and then I delete them.  I wonder why on earth do people spend time creating spam messages like these.  Do they really think they will get people? Eh *shrugs* the only people they will get are those who are on the dark and desperate side of the cyberworld.

Why fish for emails? Email spammers don't need real email addresses. They only need real domain names. Then they send emails to thousands of names at the domain. I would think that anyone with a website has come across it.

I didn't think I'd get on the Second Life profile. I have seen different versions elsewhere.

That's one of the concerns with Web Based profiles, etc, that they could get targeted by spammers.

As the spammers develop the tools to harvest information from the Web Based profiles, it is going to get worse.
