ever. dedicated hackers can find out your password if they know your email address. lately ive had people whisper me asking for my email address for my furcadia characters.

i agree.

the only reason why i posted this is because he asked someone in the ai and they gave it to him. so i was thinking if theres one person stupid enough chances are there are more.

:/ Well most of the time chances are they won't hack your email. They'll probley try sending you a keylogger, if you decline then they'll sign your email up for a buncha porn sites.

I only asked Savior for his e-mail cause I was gonna send him some patches I made. But then I thought a second and said nevermind because he probably wouldn't want them. I was gonne send some movie theatre patches to him cause I thought he might like em. Why did I pick him? He was the first person I clicked in Allegria. So people with desprete attempts to bann me from furcadia or whatever stop trying. Oh and I did try to sell patches. But they were not stolen. I didn't know i wasn't allowed to sell them until my friend that gave em to me told me. So stop trying to spred gossip. End of story.

Then again Kiwi some people are stupid :/ They use their furcadia character name for their password. And as I said people are always trying to keylog. Remember to never accept unknown files from people you don't know. Keyloggers are always hidden on pictures, movies and about anything noobs can attach them to. Remember if you have downloaded a file in which you find suspicious you can always scan it only at http://virusscan.jotti.org/

It's really retarded to hand out your email address to anyone you don't know if there's something of value stored in there for whatever reason. No matter what they say it's for, it's stupid. I personally wouldn't believe this dude if he bet me his life he was being honest. :/ He's had threads about him before... If he didn't know that it was wrong to try to sell those patches, he obviously doesn't know much. I'll bet that he found those patches somewhere he shouldn't have, or someone gave them to him, whatever the reason. He may not be actually selling them, but it seems rather fishy that he just clicks random people asking for their email addresses so he can send them free patches, then when confronted with something along the lines of 'Why for?', he says never mind. Eh, just my two cents. :/

god. why would anyone want to get e-mail addresses to send people shit unless there was some kind of malicious intent behind it? srsly. if people wanted patches, they'd go onto a patching archive to get them or ASK for them. usually people hate random whispers asking about shit unless it's from friends. his entire story is pretty retarded and questionable anyway. so i don't see the reason why he bothers. its pretty fucking dumb if you ask me.

My e-mail addresses are publicly available to everyone. I'm going to lock because it's not really a scam. It's more of internet awareness. If you want to reopen this subject, try general talk.

If you want to e-mail me I can be reached at:
