I got an email today from forums (at) absolutewrite (dot) com that said my account has been activated.

Huh??

I assumed that happened, oh, about 2005...

Is it a conspiracy? Should I write a 500 word humour news piece about it and enter it in Jay's contest?

I think they are adding radio-active super powers to certain members' posts. . .You must be in the lucky experimental group.

Shh, don't tell them I told you.

Yes! I did too. I PMd Mac about it. I panicked (sp?) thinking that someone took over my identity. I mean, I'm the only stormie around here. No one else can be as stormy as me! *Stalks off, frowning deeply, muttering.*

I got one, too, and was all up on the paranoia train. At first I figured it must have been that nefarious Susie, breaking into my account so she could ban people at will, but then I got my head on straight and blamed Dawno.

Okay. This has nothing to do with the subject of this thread as I didn't get one of the aforementioned e-mails.

I have, however, spent the past five minutes giggling at Roger's sig line.

I honestly didn't think it would be you. After all, it didn't come with an avatar change, so it must have been Dawno, not Roger...

Not to worry. It simply means you're on the fast track to become a Mod.

This was actually very useful. Receiving this "glitchy" email made me realized I was supposed to update my e-mail address. No wonder I keep getting AW stuff at the old e-mail address.

Now if only I can receive the activation thingie on the new address. :cry:

likhary was a SPAMbot. We've been having more of them show up. They way to spot them is they put a link in their sigline that has nothing to do with writing, but with something they're selling.

And they cut-n-paste previous posts to hide themselves:

The pasting makes them harder to spot anyway, most spambots couldn't spell shit if they had four letters to do it with.
