Yes - but what was the point of it?

I can at least understand why someone would send out an advert for
life insurance or a mortgage, even if I don't like them doing it, but
what was the point of that one?

My current valid email address is:

http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/(E-Mail Removed)

This is valid as is. It is not munged, or altered at all.

It will be valid for AT LEAST one month from the date of this post.

If you are trying to contact me after that time,
it MAY still be valid, but may also have been
deactivated due to spam. If so, and you want
to contact me by email, try searching for a
more recent post by me to find my current
email address.

The following is a (probably!) totally unique
and meaningless string of characters that you
can use to find posts by me in a search engine:

yes, with a different subject but the same 969 in the body

perhaps some satanic moron were messaging "his own"
with 9 being 6 upside down, so the message could
be interpreted as triple 6 and there was a brief
rant on RN that on 6/6/06 the "beast" would have
its presence known ...

some tracing links the mail to win2k.org
but they were probably just spam bunnies
