    LOL these bad guys are the perfect anti spam tool. I hope they compromise my accounts at hotmail. Nothing but spam there anyway :D
    But I would not laugh so much if they did that to my Gmail accounts though :gack:

    Over 90% of my hotmail email is spam. It is even worse for a few of my Yahoo mail accounts. I use online email exclusively because I don't want to hog up my hard drive with useless email debris (such as from Outlook). :D
