    yes...PM me the username, it won't happen again :D


    actually, it's someone looking to "purchase" a link in your .sig line....advertising-style...you put "www.mystuffhere.com" in your sig line and earn $$ for each click or something...

    interesting...

    dang, could use some $$...


    interestingly, the nigerian scams are the only ones that get through the firewalls at work... These guys might be smarter than they seem....
