Hadn't happened to me before, maybe it's old for a lot of people, but I've just gotten two gather emails from lovely ladies who want contact at their yahoo realmail addresses:
One goes [0000-nancy777-0000.gather.com]:

The other [priscilla101.gather.com]:

How did they know I'm just a lonely turkey on Christmas Day looking for more spam? Which my realmail would filter out anyway. I feel bad not replying. I wonder, do they have any economic scams if that's what gets me hot?
(PS, if you miss my limp irony,
do not respond to these.)
