Okay, so I'm checking my email, minding my own dang business, and I get quite the rude awakening... I get this nasty email from someone I DON'T EVEN KNOW!!!!! And this is the second time this has happened.... I don't even know how this person knows me or got my email address.... Do people have nothing better to do with their time??

Alena,
Don't think that 'cause you got with a guy that plays for KC Chiefs that you have it all and that you're better than everyone else. You need to quit acting all stuck up. You probably don't even really know him, and even if u do, I'm quite sure he's f@cking around and tricking on you. And I really don't think you got anything he wants besides p***y. So don't be a b!tch all the time cause you ain't sh!t and neither is he.


--------
Okay... I just don't get it... why me??? I don't even know this person...Anyone have any logic on this? Cause I'm surely puzzled

Alena:

I normally just delete e-mails if I don't recognize the address. I never even open them to read. I figure it's either a sales pitch, a forward, or a porno advertisement.

Next time don't even waste your time reading it if you don't know the person. Just my 2 cents.

It's probably the same person who came on here using "Chiefs Suck" as their id yesterday. The thread that Pam brought up asking you about Dante Hall was at the top of the board about the same time that this jerk-off started posting here.

I'm with the Twin. Any e-mail that I don't recognize gets deleted without being read. And I never open an attachment to an email. Viruses don't have a chance if you don't invite them into your computer.

If you have a "block sender" function on your e-mail, use it. I get so much junk and unsolicited mail now that the first thing I do is "block sender" on mail I don't recognize. Then I read my mail from family and friends, second.

Good luck.

2034 - I agree, you should just put a block sender on this guys email. He is just looking to piss you off, just like the trolls do. Just ignore the loser, he appearntly has nothing better to do with his time and is probably like 15 years old and one of the "quite" guys that everyone ignores at school. He figures since you can't see what a pitiful loser he is, that he can act pretty big behind a computer screen.

Alena,

I don't want to come off as if I'm some old man trying to pass down the wisdom of the ages, but you seem like an intelligent, clear thinking, good person and I think you will come to the realization that people like this are to be pitied.

We all have different levels of maturity and one of my continual surprises is the age of some people that have never developed in their thinking as a human being and as a feeling person.

Use it as a source of ammusement (and personal pride ~ no one tries to bring a loser down to their level!

Luz
have a good day!...

I dunno, he sounds like he's about 12 years old, but you should be able to find his email address in the header there and block it. If you want, I might be able to find out where it came from so you can call his internet sevice provider and complain at the abuse department... that is considered harrassment if he does it more than once. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

Does e-mail have the same guidelines as regular mail...it is illegal to use profanity in regular mail...send the guy to Leavenworth...no, wait, he'd probably like all the attention he get from all his new butt hole buddies...

You could always give all of us his email address and we could bombard him with stuff.

58Forever,
Actually, many of the federal laws that govern "snail mail" apply to e-mail now. I unfortunately found this out the hard way... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I like the Senator's idea...I'd like to forward all the porno e-mails I get to him...maybe he'd enjoy reading them...I'm tired of blocking the sender....

Bishop, I'm intrigued....

Don't forget that he has your email address everytime you send something to him 58... not that he sounds intelligent enough to hit the reply button on his mail program.

... I wonder if his girl is "tricking" on him and that is why he is so upset???

Bishop beat me to it, but here's what you do:

Forward a copy of the email to abuse@globix.net and tell them about it. Tell them that you feel threatened. If it keeps happening and they ignore you, tell them you're talking to a lawyer.

I used to work in the abuse department for a large ISP...it works... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Joe - Those Porn things in my hotmail account just will not go away, luckily that is my spam account otherwise I would be really annoyed. It ranks just above the fast internet access and the financial advise. Spam sucks.

DoktorSmith
10-11-2000, 11:01 AM
jeff, I know what you mean...if it's not porn, it's someone trying to loan me money or sign me up for some get rich quick scheme.....

Bishop...I use my private e-mail address which doesn't give a clue as to my identity on this BB...besides...that's why I sent him golf stuff and not some profanity laced tirade...no need to have some fool out there looking for me...

Beware of spamming the guy back, most of your ISP's have no spam policy...a friend of mine decided to get back at a spammer and sent numerous replys at once and lost his internet connection as soon as the IP saw 25 emails going to the same address. A phone call to the IP got him back on after he was reminded of his terms of agreement...complain to the provider

Surely nobody would use their own ISP when there is Yahoo, Popmail, Hotmail, etc. available.

That's not been Bob Dole's experience with Yahoo.

AustinChief

It hasn't been Bob Dole's experience, because large ISPs don't actively monitor their users.

1) It takes too much time.

but more importantly

2) There's an ambiguity in the law that allows them to do this. As an ISP, if I "actively" police my network stamping out "bad" people, and I miss someone, I am responsible for the one guy and his actions.

If however, I just log everything and forget about it, I am not liable for him or his stuff, but only to hand it over if the cops ask for it.

I worked on ALOT of child porn cases, and it's nothing new. Yahoo doesn't care what you're doing, unless the FBI subpeona's the transaction logs for your account. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Which was Bob Dole's original point, that you can do pretty much anything you want to with your Yahoo, Popmail, Hotmail, etc. account.

VA FAN
10-11-2000, 02:22 PM
Bob, even with a hotmail account, your actual IP address that you are logged onto is imbedded in the properties of your message when it is received, tho. If it is an offensive message, that person just takes those numbers and goes to http://visualroute.datametrics.com/
and input those numbers and most times will have your provider name..then they contact them, give date and time of email and they know who was logged on at that time...a lot of work, but hate for anyone to think they are totally anonymous on the net
