    I get those too sometimes. What i generally do is as soon as they message me just hit block. then you wont get those messages again. Well atleast from those same people.

    #!/usr/local/bin/perl -s-- -export-a-crypto-system-sig -RSA-in-3-lines-PERL
    ($k,$n)=@ARGV;$m=unpack(H.$w,$m.\"\\0\"x$w),$_=`echo \"16do$w 2+4Oi0$d*-^1[d2%
    Sa2/d0<X+d*La1=z\\U$n%0]SX$k\"[$m*]\\EszlXx++p|dc`,s/^.|\\W//g,print pack(\'H*\'
    ,$_)while read(STDIN,$m,($w=2*$d-1+length($n||die\"$0 [-d] k n\\n\")&~1)/2)

    Basically companies are registering tons of SN's. And using bots to mass IM.

    Imagine brute forcing, but instead of one username and trying combinations of passwords, its one service (AIM/ICQ) and trying combinations of working/online Screen names. If you're offline, or the SN just doesn't exist, they just try the next letter, number, whatever - do this enough times and your SN will eventually come up.
    hes right, and many companies go to chat rooms with bots and have them auto-collect user names via messaging them.

    dosnt AIM ask if you want to receive messages from such and such a user if your setting only allow those on your list?...i know MSM does and thought AIM did to.
    Bukhari:V3B48N826 “The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.’”

    it does but it's an auto pop up dialog box... so I'll be typing and it will come across and then it sometime all the time selects yes...then I get the whole "Hot gay lesbian lovers here"
