    2 members (one elsewhere ) voicing concerns, better safe then sorry, he,she,it is gone. Also the other member got virtually the same message as you.

    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    Yeah, I got one this morning. I brought it up with the other mods, and it looks like the appropriate steps have been taken. Thanks for the keen eye!

    Was it the bad spelling, bad grammer or poor sentence structure which gave it away?

    That is a hard read. It looks like it has been run through babel fish.

    You should have asked them if they had any laptops, cell phones, pills or degrees to boot. I'm sure they would do a good deal. I've got loads of offers in my yahoo mail but I'm holding out for a really great deal. Perhaps a package deal like one degree plus a cell phone and a mixer of pills.

    Nah, the mods are hiding threads and keeping all those offers to ourselves.
    Safe computing is a habit, not a toolkit.
