    I got that too.

    Just deleted it like any other spam.

    Sad when people have to harvest off memberlists. I think this happened to me once at DLRArmy a LONG time ago, not sure. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
    I'm one of those crazies on your block.

    Hi, I am a professional freelance photographer in NYC. I have recently
    decided to make the photos from my private collection available. I have
    candid and concert photos of past and present members of Van Halen. Photos
    were taken in and around NYC. THESE PHOTOS ARE FROM MY PRIVATE COLLECTION &
    ARE NEVER BEFORE SEEN. All photos are from the original negatives (I own the
    original negatives). I can email you a scan if you would like to see them
    first (please note the email scans will have "SAMPLE" written across them and
    a number, the ones you buy will not). All Photos will be shipped in a photo
    safe mailer to prevent any damage. Prices are as follows:

    4x6 - $4 for 1, $3 each additional
    8x10 - $15 for 1, $10 each additional

    (Prices include shipping)

    I ALSO HAVE THOUSANDS OF PICTURES OF MANY OTHER CELEBRITIES, IF YOU ARE
    INTERESTED IN PICTURES OF ANYONE ELSE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

    If you would like to see my history of successful sales, please check my ebay
    profile -- Mike21565

    _____________________________________________


    If this person is a member here, I would have preferred that they identify themselves as such, but they did not. It looks like someone went down a list and grabbed email addresses here for solicitation. I HATE getting email that wants to sell me something when I don't know who is sending.

    Anyway, has this sort of thing happened before here? And, has anyone thought of how to avoid this? I would hate to see this place turn into a marketing tool for outsiders.

    Perhaps it could be arranged that ANYONE who views the email addresses here (either in profiles or the member list) sees and ok's an agreement stating that said info is NOT to be used for solicitation, harrassment, and the like? If cookie'ed, we'd only have to see it once, but would give a little more clout to our replies when handling these jackoffs, not to mention the legal aspects, if they are any.

    Any ideas?

    Yea it's not worth getting your shorts in a knot over. Just a click and it's gone.
    Abe, I hope you rubbed you're screen vigorously with steel wool to make sure it was gone. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I got that too - thought it was a result of some VH stuff I bought on ebay. Only got it once though, and deleted it. I agree - annoying.

    Somebody had to go through a heck of a lot of trouble to get those emails, because no where on this site are all of emails displayed on one page, for the very reason of combatting spam. You'd have to click at least once to get a person's email from any screen. So that's why I think this will be an isolated issue.
