And, guess what ? They were lining up to give out lots of lovely info to a total stranger.
And you wonder why you are being spammed ??
You may call me an old cynic..Damn right I am.
I don't get it either... spammers aren't starting threads asking for our information.

Easily seen, easily clicked and commented on. In and out. Spammers aren't getting paid to go through a site and sit there for long periods of time... Click on a few of the front page things, leave you a link to my spamz
To curb this, we at PSC should make it so that if you want to comment on entries, you've gotta participate at least once in the daily contests.
