That wasn't tough to read. </sarcasm>

what happened in future is an oxymoron, Happened is in the past form depicting a future event! :P

If they ever get time travel off the ground, they're going to need to invent whole new tenses...

Would you agree that spam is much better in the AM, with eggs and hashed browned potatoes?

email spam is not made of dead pokemons

Are you sure? Pokemons are, after all, essentially digital constructions. E-mail is also a digital construction.

It is certainly possible that e-mail spam is made by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam_(food) finely chopping pokemons], mixing them with secret herbs and spices, and stuffing them into cans...

Hmm, that makes it doubly suspicious, if it was sent to someone that uses "kid" as part of their user name. It is probably some messed up guy....

Just don't have any more contact with her (like,
don't give her your address) and you should be fine. He's doomed isn't he? Just fine.

Lol. Just guessing from loveGIRL (although I suppose I of all people should know better than to guess people's gender from their screen names...)

Anyway, in all seriousness I don't think you need to be concerned. There is no common denominator in our names that I can see, and you are the only "kid" that she has spammed (that we know of). Personally, I think she went to the top forum topics or maybe the featured page and picked our names out at random, since we are all fairly famouswell-known. I don't think he/she/it is targeting you specifically.

Sorry.....but if were really some "female", and she got "off on kids"; would that be any better ? Sounds like the person is a bit freakish either way. You know me though, the ever cautious one......still, I am sorry if I spooked you any.

There are two lovegirl accounts, both created on the same day.

I expect the second ("lovegirl70") will become active as soon as "lovegirl" gets deleted.

Not the same day. Lovegirl70 was created March 6th, 08, lovegirl was created 'May' 6th, 08. But still.
