Has anyone else been getting email from someone u dont even know but u klnow
they r from aw? i got one and i forget the name but it was a strange name.
They didn't say much of anything and i replied and asked who they were and
if i am supposed to know them. He/she replied that it was impy. does anyone
know an impy? i sure dont and cant figure out why they would email me. and
my puter has been acting really strange since then. even a whole folder with
pictures dissappeard for no reason at all.

Ahemmm........let me try this again! LOL I just replied under the wrong
thread. (ok, ok.......it's after 3am where I am! lol) As I was saying,
she has responded to you right here in NG's a couple of threads back. I
would say she has taken your email address from here. She didn't have to
look hard or go far to find it.

actually i think 2 or 3 reunions a year would be awesome. one on the east
coast and one in the central zone and one on the west coast. because most
ppl cant afford to go clear across the united states.

Let me warn you about a few things:
1, Never open an email you are not sure about the sender.
2, Never use an email client which displays the email in those fancy form (called HTML <eg>)
3, Be aware that the sender can be infected by a virus which gets the email addresses harvested from his/her Address Book and those mails are claim they are from known source.

I do have my mail server which helps to weed out the bad plants but even that is not enough sometimes.
Always use "text only" emails and never use HTML. Never open ANY attachments you are not expecting to get!
Disappearing picture folders is a sure sign of a virus which can reach your machine only if you did not take the precautions above (and that list is really very short!!!)
Use a client side spam filter (POPFile <http://popfile.sourceforge.net/> or K9 <http://keir.net/k9.html> are good choices, I use them for all my email clients - and they are free), use a firewall which marks/removes attachments which are dangerous (I can go on for hundreds of lines to give more advices but I stop here)

Just a tip I do...
Use an external mailer for unknown mail as in use Yahoo or Hotmail let them
deal with the spam/virus's.
I keep an email addy totally private for special use. Afterall its easier to
delete an account with Yahoo and Hotmail than it is to delete an account
with your ISP.

Well it seems that Skype was the culprit for the dissappearing folder and I
did finally find the folder. for some unknown reason it went to program
files. I just installed Skype a few days ago. I uninstalled it and my puter
is running well again. But I wish that impy would quit emailing me. I dont
know her nor do I ever want to know someone that does what she did.

I'm using Skype since its appearance and it never gave me any headache (of course I never accept any file sent to me through it:) and you know how paranoid I am <eg>

I havent accepted any files with Skype either. Anyway my puter problem
stopped after i uninstalled it. I just hope now that Impy KN stops spamming
me. I just got 2 emails from her this morning after she told me she took me
off her email list. I just can't conceive why anyone would email someone
they dont even know. Makes no sense to me at all unless they have a mental
problem. In that case I guess it would only make sense to the crazy person.

Ciena,
Please read Andras's post regarding viruses.
It is possible that the sender doesn't even know that they are coming from
their machine.

If that does happen to fail and not work, I know that Thunderbird has
the nice ability to blacklist email addresses.

Hum seems there could many reasons why this could have happened. Knowing
impy as I do, the simplest reason seems to apply here. She may have simply
hit reply all on an e-mail she was sent, that would have sent the reply to
you as well. I am sure you know that since you seem to be such an
intelligent reasonable person.

Same time, you made the choice to open them. Why not make the choice to put
her on your block or junk list instead so they go directly to your trash
folder?
Why grip and whine in the Newsgroups about something that is completely in
your control, and why get nasty and post the name that came across with her
e-mail address, Judi Gilbert?
I am sure you are really mad now since I put your name up here, hope you see
the other side of the coin and now realize what a low thing you did, and how
it feels.
I know you will probably post my name as well and flame me as well, however
keep in mind, it won't be the first time my RL name was put on the
Newsgroups, or that I was flamed here. I will however make the choice not to
care and not to read them.

I emailed her back and grammed her and asked her kindly not to email me and
take me off her email list. that didn't help she emailed me 2 more after
that. then she had the nerve to tell me not to bring up her name in the NG's
which is where she got my email address from in the 1st place. she also told
me she mass emailed it. She has blocked me from gramming her about this too.
but thats ok i because I blocked her now too and banned her from 7 worlds.
and i'm sure after i tell a my friends about this they will ban her from
their worlds. and one of them owns 8 or 9 worlds.

hang out with trashy ppl.

Also, last minute thought. You found that Skype was the reason behind the
missing file, yet I have yet to see where you apologized to impy for blaming
her for your computers malfunction. Mayhap I missed it.

I did not say that was the cause I said I had a missing file, but I would be
happy to apologize to her if she would apologize to me for sending me her
garbage emails. AND not ever send me any again.

i just want to know why she even had me on her email list. does she have to
add complete strangers to her email and send them crap? its just is not what
a sane person would do. I have added spam to sapm folder but it doesnt seem
to stop them at all. "Sarus Tor SS"

Ok since you have me intrigued. I answered the why she added you to her
list. After asking her, I will correct myself, her outlook messed up and
auto added you. I am sure since your computer never makes mistakes this has
never and will never happen to you.

I happen to agree with Sarus, you are the one whining like a child, about an
e-mail. There are much bigger problems in this world, however since you
either seem to be unaware, or unwilling to see them, when you grow up you
will make a sorry adult and human being. I sure hope if aliens ever come to
earth they don't meet you first since you would give them a sad impression
of humanity.

"she must get some kind of perverted satisfaction doing this." from your
8/2/06 7:13am post,

Seems you are the one getting perverted satisfaction since she has not
replied to your posts that were designed to infuriate and provoke her. Guess
we know who the real adult is.

Also you are correct you did not say she stole your file, you simple
insinuated it. I still say you should apologize to her for that, I know that
will not happen since children rarely see the error of their ways.

"Makes no sense to me at all unless they have a mental
problem. In that case I guess it would only make sense to the crazy person.
lol" from your 8.2.06 9:32am post

I must be an adult, I fail to see the humor in that statement. I do see the
intent however.

Yes I made the choice to reply, my choice to make. What choice will you make
now?

what part of this do u not understand?? "but I would be
happy to apologize to her if she would apologize to me for sending me her
garbage emails. AND not ever send me any again." i am still waiting for her
apology since she is the one that did this to me. also im not whining about
"A" little email try 3 of them!! 2 of which was AFTER i asked her KINDLY in
a nice way not to email me again. By the way u act i can see what kind of
people she hangs out with. I dont want anything to do with u or her. I am
not replying anymore on this matter. U have turned it into a flame war. I am
done with this. so who ever replies i will no longer add fuel to this fire.
u guys can all just have at it! you 3 people just arent worth my time or
energy. I have better things to do that fight with a bunch of idiots.

I'm guessing that you don't want her to apologize via email? *ducking and
running* (couldn't resist) hehe

Looks like you made the first post starting a thread you could not handle,
but oh well.
Have a nice day. Thank you for not wanting to hang out with me since I did
not ask you to.
