I wonder how they managed to find a word I don't believe I have ever seen.

Yep, I admit, assiduity is a new one for me.

Learning even from scammers, who'd a thunk it.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Ya know, you should send then the name and address (etc) of someone you really don't like. Then just sit back and watch the show.

My *brain* hurt after reading that!

One assumes that anyone stupid enough to reply would be asked to send a small "check release fee" or some other form of payment to them first, to enable the transfer of money into their account. If I got one of those, it would be fun to respond just to see what sort of "hook" they tried to catch you with.

What do you think baggs? You should reply, and report back here as the game develops!
