    Spam

    Are some people stupid enough to give away their credit card numbers when answering spam ? Come on ! You get a message with some weird proposal to buy some Viagra (like I could use it ? Yeah right !) or some way to increase your p**** size (trust me guys, size doesn't matter... well, as long as it's not tooooo short !) from someone you cannot identify. You have to be f****** stupid to actually believe you are going to receive your order.
    So, as long as some e-mail users are naive enough to buy that c***, we will continue to be harrassed by spam and I doubt there is any way to prevent it.

    My eBay ID was stolen

    My eBay ID(koolkid1976) was stolen once. eBay's stupid security gave them access to change my password by guessing what year I was born. I'm partially to be blamed too, because the year is in my ID.
    They listed a few items and bid and won an item in a matter of a couple hours. I was able to re-gain control of my account, and got her name and address from the person she won the auction from. I contaced eBay who "could not discuss the results of the investigation" with me. I emailed the woman a couple times but got no response.

    I was angry enough to consider sending here email viruses or mean letters to her home. But just let it go since I didn't lose any money.
