Reminds me of the joke where the diner calls the waiter over and says: "Waiter, there's a fly in my soup !'

The waiter looks at it, and says "Shhhh ! Everyone will want one now."
More people are doing it today than ever before !

No real porn but the ammount of the junk e-mail I get totally skyrocketed after signing up for the new Forum. Too much of a coincidence to be anything else. I saying it went from 2 or 3 a week to 25+ a day. Insane. Been blocking for weeks but it's still coming.

G.R.

Ask your wife to reconsider. If you explain that she would then have only one HALF of the work to do. Half the cooking, half the dishes, half the cleaning, half the laundry.

For you, when one of them is in a bad mood, the other probably would not be in a bad mood. Thus, you have half the bad mood time.

Seems like it would be a win win situation for all three of you. :lol:

I haven't had any spam since I signed up. Maybe my server has a better filter, maybe your problem was from another source.

How would a spammer get my email address from my signing up here?

So everyone who has signed up for this forum has had their email "superhacked" by a pornographic spammer?

I don't think I have any more than before.
As far as I understand, if you don't open them they are harmless, especially if the wife is watching. :o

Heinrich Himmler was leader of the Schutzstauffel, or more widely known as the "SS".

His involvement in internet porn doesn't show up in history books or internet searches. :lol:

Burger, isn't he the guy who said if you tell the truth often enough, it will become a lie ? Or am I confused ? Certainly not to be confused with "our" Heinrich, Institute Researcher Emeritus. (OK, OK, so I am generally confused.)

Rich, I'm glad to hear you still have that Edison cylinder pornograph. Mother wouldn't let me keep it. The spring always was weak, owing to corrosion. It originally came from the Viagra Falls area where humidity is always high. Few people know that Thomas Alva had a playful side to his personality and could be rather naughty at times. His early pornograph was quite scandalous at the time, but these days seems quite sedate compared to the fare on prime time TV.

VIAGRA FALLS! Slowly I turned. Step by step.....
Yes Heinrich is a little perturbed. He is Lithuanian-American and often accused of being connected with the villains of past wars. We tend to jump to conclusions. He never posted an "OFF TOPIC" offering in the "ON TOPIC" section or an "ON TOPIC" in the "OFF TOPIC" site. I have apologized several times to him but he still won't come out of the storm cellar. With a name like Smuckers... it has to be good.
When did I do that?

Someone commented years ago that that may be one of the most brilliant advertising slogans ever. I think I probably have to agree. :D

Heinrich has nothing to be sensitive about. Some of my best friends are Lithuanians. That Lithuanian Grease was the cornerstone of Marflak Lubrication the Texacoco Service stations made famous for so many years !!

I know Heinrich's meticulous nature would never allow him to post off-topic topics anyplace but in the off-topic tropics. Now, off-color topics are a horse of a different topic. Thanks for staying on topic !

I am also getting these SPAM messages on my email everyday. My email adr. is for my company, so I cannot change it!

Every One of these emails are saying it is being sent as a courtesy of the ModelTclubofAmerica!

I doubt there is anything our mods can do because these people already have our email addresses.

Their email is 1488daysofbliss@gmail.com Maybe every member that reads this should fill his email with posts! :mrgreen:

I am going to GUESS that the MTFCA membership site has been hacked, not the forum's membership. I am not a member of MTFCA and I have not received any of these emails.


OR, maybe the old Forum's members membership list was hacked, I know it had some difficulty with spammers.


Is there anyone getting these pornographic emails marked as MTFCA who is not a member of MTFCA, but is a member of this forum?
