That's one of the downsides of using your real identity online.

My sign up e-mail here (or any place really) goes to some mailcatch.com adress. So that's where all my gay porn subs go to now I guess 8)

(Well at least these ones 8O :lol: )

The downside of trying to run an online business, I really can't hide like other people can.

It's more serious than that, he's finding out what sites I already have.

If you guys would just give me your passwords then you probably wouldn’t get all these reset notices in your inbox. I’m never going to get my Russian work visa at this rate.

hmmm. interesting

i checked my site stats just after deleting all the password reset emails

my ever popular site has had four visits today, it was only at two just after all the pw reset emails, which have only been for the home page. which has a link for my soundcloud page on it

i would maybe think it is reasonable to assume that the spammer guy found my soundcloud page quick by clicking on my homepage link in my sig when i posted ?

my country stats say that there have now been 2 visits from brazil today, 1 from the uk (probably me, while checking this). and one from canada


maybe shit? or not? :?
