I'm actually quite impressed with the ingenuity of these spammers but they've fallen at the last hurdle by picking on someone their own size!
- They've thought of a really clever way of contacting people where the person is likely to trust them and they can send them a personal message without it being picked up by a spam filter.
- Then they've sent them a message advertising a 'web only' Simpson's episode that links to spam.
- What they forgot was that the only people who watched this episode and then added chunkylover53 to their buddy list were nerds!

I've always wondered why such technically adept spammers don't earn big money working for IT firms, now i know why. D'oh!
