people are very dumb, but all it takes is 1 person out of a billion to fall for it for them to keep at it.

Think of it this way, its like telemarketing scams, but automated, so the cost for them to run it is very low.
how funny would it be if it was real though?

i love it when someones typing something and they accidentally make a smiley..
I was wondering because my email isnt on there anywhere.
