    It's just amusing when people get these emails and think they are for real.

    thing is i knew it was a spam email someone else may get it and not realise, i thought misc was to help each other out and give advice as well as all the other stuff ~ maybe i was wrong this place has changed soooo much

    Doesn't make it any less amusing though

    i think the point is, that if you were to post every type of email of this kind there would be nothing else on this forum, even if they are the latest ones, etc

    While some may spot spam emails straightaway, some may not realise it and this will be helpful for them OP.
