Ralph of [email protected] has sent out an old hoax about Bill Gates sending out money for every e-mail you forward to people. This hoax is so old that it has cobwebs. Isn't this a violation of Samba rules to be sending junk to e-mail addresses gathered here? He sent it to at least 200 to 300 people, most of whom I recognize as being Samba members and vendors. We get enough crap in our e-mails without someone abusing the Samba.

Probably not him. AOL email addresses are always getting hacked then their address book is used for spam.

There is no way to mass gather emails from here, although you could slowly add people to your address book as you interact with other members, for instance buying & selling from/to them.

I can't control this.

I would respond to him and ask him not to contact you or to send you this sort of junk mail.

It's also possible he has some sort of virus that is sending out crap to everyone in his address book.
