Spammed by PC Datasheet

P: n/a
RR
Does everyone who posts here get spammed by PC Datasheet, or is it just a
"lucky few"? I've asked two questions in the last year, and gotten spammed
by him both times.

Yes yes I know, dont used a correct email address. Sad part is I am not
getting spam for anyone except from the "access professional".

Or maybe I misunderstood what this news group was all about..........

I have not experienced this. And in my history I have only seen sensible
posts by PC datasheet. Could this possibly be a virus operating? Abuse
of his name? We do have resident trolls, you know.

Oh and I did notice a significant increase in spam as I posted here. It
seems spambots are still active. I do not use my correct mailadress
anymore exactly for that reason.

who spend time to help others.

Here is the email, basically the same each time.........do you think its a
troll?

would like to offer to create a

be $150. You can be assured

It might not be deliberate unsolicited email. Some people press reply
all when responding to posts on usenet and if your address is not
munged, you will get it directly. It is irritating when someone does it
all the time, but it does happen and despite my position in the last
trainwreck of a thread I was involved with over Steve, I'd give him the
benefit of the doubt.

Also, I've sometimes responded directly to a poster if I've come across
their post some days after it was posted and no one else has helped
him/her - some people don't follow threads, even ones they've started
for more than a couple of days, so i do it to be sure the person gets a
response.

IMO this is no virus, no troll also.
I guess since Steve has problem's advertising here, he is trying 'direct mail'.

Ja dat zou kunnen natuurlijk.

Maybe he'll answer one day. I don't believe in a marketing method like
that. And I won't let myself irritate either.

RR, as you asked: No, I haven't (then, I don't post too many questions).
Nice to have Delete.
