    Default Spammy E-mails

    My inbox had 3,000+ emails in it today from returned mail. Evidently someone sent out a crap-load of e-mails using my e-mail address as the return address. I don't know if they were sent from inside of this website or from another server somewhere else using my address.

    Either way, if you got one of these 'energy' related e-mails, I didn't send it. I'm trying to figure out if I got a virus or not so please be patient.

    I deleted the original e-mail address (steve@thecablevine.com) and created a new one. So, if you get a spammy e-mail from the new address which begins with admin@.... then please let me know.

    Thanks
    Steve

    I needed to change it anyway. The Spam I was getting was growing steadily. It seems many people think my body parts are not big enough, or just plain don't work.

    I wish Corporate America would wake up and realize what we really need to make those 'body parts' work correctly - A HOT 20 YEAR OLD !
    I might not be as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was !
