By the way, could the Mods put a link to this thread or copy it or something so it shows up in the other threads or something? It's important to warn as many people as possible.

No one we care about is that stupid to fall for this.


Also, things like these have been going on with Skype for a while.

I don't know what other thread you have in mind, other than the Skype thread in Spam. Putting this in there would be a bit pointless because people would see this thread when they come into Spam anyhow.

Plus, ya, it's not that big of a deal.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

I heard about that about a week or two ago.

And I'd assume you'd take a shot at Soul quicker than me. Guess he has to try harder to get that far.
