Default SCAMS?

It appears there's a troll posting from a gmail account.
"keyless entry installation"
"car dent repair,got scammed"
"Honda clutch kit"

And;
"amazing opportunity".

LOL! I don't know about the Honda clutch kit poster but the other two
are definitely using the right free mail provider. They are definitely
worthy of Goofy Mail accounts.

Troll or Idiot, what's the difference? <g>

Uh- well I posted about the Honda clutch kit- I use gmail
(ueberbill@NOSPAMgmail.com). Don't THINK I'm a troll. Guess I could be.
Would still like to know the best place to get a clutch kit, though.

Thanks,

I guess I could use one of my other addresses- but google makes it
rather easy to post using a gmail address. I didn't know it was
uncouth to use gmail. I'm rather a big fan of theirs.

I dunno - the first three posts seem legit enough and not very troll-like.
The last looks like typical spam. Am I missing something? (Although it is a
lot of gmail activity suddenly.)

gmail and hotmail have gained a reputation for being favorite tools of
trolls and scammers, because they are disposable. I agree with you, though;
I have my ISP mailbox (the one that shows up here) but I actually prefer my
Yahoo mailbox. It's a hassle to reply through the ISP because that one only
accepts posts through dial-up, while Yahoo works seamlessly through
broadband and has much better spam filtering.

If you post in here with a 'real' email address, you will need that spam
filter!

Truth to tell, you really don't need any kind of legitimate email if you are
trolling or don't care for a response. Your return email could be
'abc@def.com' - the Usenet just doesn't care. My email is 'munged' - it has
an extra letter added, but a human being could reasonably be expected to
dope it out. (And some computer programs, maybe).

IMO, 'keyless entry', 'got scammed', and 'clutch kit' are not trollish in
the least. I did not find 'amazing opportunity' (story of my life), but that
subject line pretty much gives it away.
