Hi,I'm new here, how's it going?"Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein---PatriciaXXXXXXXX

What a load of pish!

Wow, and I had thought that "Patricia" had singled me out personally (based on the extensive information in my profile (as well as my general karma) no doubt) as a potential life- and soul-mate!

Odds are it is coming from someone's PC without their knowledge. Hackers dump spyware and trojans in to innocent folks PCs via email or web links that person accidentally may click. Then, that run programs in the background of the new host computer that spams everyone in that person's contacts, usually making it look like it came from other contacts in that list.

twisted, downright twisted..

I don't think a virus/trojan/etc would be smart enough to know the user has an EpicSki account, create it's own viral-skier account on EpicSki, and then send PMs.... But maybe I am underestimating the modern viral cyber-skier .

I just got that PM too--used to date a girl called Patricia in the mid 80's and thought she'd started skiing and found me again! Too bad.....
