Scam spams  
Has anyone noticed that bank account scam emails have gotten shorter and shorter? It used to be like,

"Dear Honorable Sir JEFFREY FADEN, Esq.,

[insert 5 paragraphs here jam-packed with courtesy and serious business]

$6 MILLION DOLLARS USD CASH $$$

[5 more paragraphs of being really kind and shit]

Love,
Completely Serious Name, Ngudukubuntulinux, Africa."


Now it's just like "HELLO SIR I HAVE $6 MILLION DO YOU WANT SOME? GIVE ME YOUR BANK ACCOUNT THANKS"

Some people just have no manners.

Someone should take down all those e-mail addys that send out those emails, and return to each address a scam message like that.

...I wonder what would happen if they started sending return mails with account numbers.

I could easily imagine a scammer so dumb that he'd fall for his own scam.
