Anyone Else Get an E-Mail from Ed Yourdon? : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

I opened my Yahoo e-mail this morning to discover, lo and behold, and e-mail from Ed Yourdon. He says he has taken the liberty of signing me up for his e-zine with all of his provacative little stories and personal musings.

My question is, how did he get my e-mail address? I've never signed up for or posted any thing on his E-Z Board site. The only things I've ever posted about Y2K are here and on the old TB2K. So, is old Ed, with nothing better to do, trolling addresses over here?

I know you're reading this, Ed, so why not tell us?

I get my share of spam but none from Himself. You must be very important Jim.

Many are called but few are chosen. I guess that you are one of the blessed :^)

I got one too, because I had sigend up for Sleazy. You use to post on the old forum did you not? Is that your real e-mail? That's one of the benefits that comes with using your real e-mail on the net, you'll be getting spammed into oblivion.

"Many are called but few are chosen. I guess that you are one of the blessed"

I take it that is your alD impression.

Hawk: I have an EZ account and have posted there from time to time. No email to me. I didn't post on the old TB2K board.

You are just lucky.

Yep. I got one too. I signed up the first day, and then chose to never post there after the bannings. I have received several e-mails from EZ general umbrella and feel dignified to be contacted by "christ" himself.

why not return the favor and sign him up for some online porno?

It might do his old body good!

Why? All he has to do is visit EZ TB II. By the Supreme Court Definition: "No Redeeming Social Value",,,,it should be pornographic to help someone his age to get his jollies off.

And for those who don't think that EdZies's TB II or Hump the Dumb or the rest of them are not porno, look at all the cult followers thinking they are getting the "real inside scoop" on what is "really going on but "THEY" aren't tell US,,,the TROOOOOOF."
