I’m Confused..

It’s Time To play What Were They Thinking?!

Okay, this spam I understand.


It is a “scary” alert that is trying to get me to click a link (note the red WOT toolbar warning?) so a cyber-criminal can record my login username and password (and probably try to infect my machine).
In short, a classic “phishing” attack. (And if I banked at US Bank, it might work..)

But this has me puzzled*..

idiot spammer

To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.
