    Hi all. I am always looking to chat with and meet new people. I used to have a berry with bbm but that went down a path I would rather forget. I would love to get more out of my instant messaging programs. If you would like to chat and will actually chat, hit me up at [email address removed] to chat on gtalk. I am 34 and I live in Philadelphia. African-American as well. Hope to hear from a lot of you.

    anyone think this could possibly be a spam bot setup?

    I wouldnt know how to spam on a good day but thanks for giving me a laugh. Just a thread to meet new people through private message now that I am aware posting my email is not a good thing to do.

    The problem with publicly posting your email address is that you are inviting spam to your own inbox - by the truckload.

    Welcome aboard. :)

    Agreed. Robot crawlers (like google, but malicious) pick up these email address's, and store them in databases. Those databases are then sold to many email spammers. =/

    on cracbkerry, people would CONSTANTLY post their BB PINs so they could talk with other people. It was a VERY social experience. I think some people coming from that experience miss it.

    With android, it definitely is tougher since you're just publicly posting your email addy. However, I never understood posting your PIN either. I can barely keep up with the few friends I've got :)
