    Sadly, I did not know (until today) that your name is Greg. The packaging actually said Indiana Greg and the Temple of Boom. No hidden (or inside) meaning.

    Hi Greg, now I want to try the maple nut goodies. So thanks for that.
    You may (or may not) know my name is Scott, my wife Rachel and everyone knows the pooches names, cause I post them ALL THE TIME.
    Nice to be properly introduced.

    We get along - I will watch documentaries on String Theory, or Multiverses. He will enjoy the geology, weather and climate documentaries I prefer.
    Anything about Mars is great. Keeping fingers crossed for Opportunity. Planetwide dust storm on Mars.

    Neither one of us cares for the new movies.

    Dang. I actually thought you found that and posted it as a nice compliment a la "that was Greg doing a mic drop (BOOM) on the prior post." ;)

    Ah, well. (When you get more pooches maybe name them shale and mail? :D )

    Oh, and don't try the Maple Nut Goodies until they fix them. Otherwise you'll think I'm deranged to like them. ;)

    I'm not familiar with your Maple Nut Goodies, so I feel a trans-atlantic confectionery swap is needed. You send me a bag of Maple Nut Goodies, and I'll send you a proper bar of chocolate ;)

    Seeing as how I have spent countless hours cleaning up after these jokers when three of our corporate email accounts got hacked, I have nothing but fond wishes of long-lasting itchy rashes in places best left unscratched.

    However, I can't fault the spammers entirely when the car was left running with the doors unlocked and the keys still in the ignition .... the accounts that were hacked were using the following passwords ... "blond", "america" and the granddaddy of them all "1234".

    99% of the time users are their own worst enemy.

    I mean when "Super Bitch" (who is part of the Mujaheddin!) is sending email, isn't the normal person already on high alert? :D :D

    At least in my case, the spamathon began early Sunday morning using company accounts that didn't get checked until Monday. I do have sending limits on the server so it could have been worse, but it was still a major pain to get the backlog, bounced replies and our sender reputation cleaned up. And, of course I forced all users to immediately change passwords with enforced complexity. Never underestimate the power of lazy and stupid when used in combination!

    Stupidity, or stubbornness?
    Also, from the same article: https://religiousgrounds.wordpress.com/2016/05/11/bonhoeffer-on-stupidity-entire-quote/

    Reminds me of many online discussions :)

    But we're all "stupid" in some ways.

    Bonhoeffer was an amazing man in many respects. If you’re interested in knowing more about him, I can commend to you Eric Mataxas’ excellent book, “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy.” I don’t read a whole lot of nonfiction, much less biographies, but if they were all written this well, I probably would.
