    Nope, I have done in the past though giving them stupid quotes. But don't anymore since finding out they sell on your email. ;)

    No, I still don't get any spam! They must have thought I wasn't worth selling! Can't blame 'em really! ;)

    I replied to one :mad: did'nt realise it was a scam until they came up with a story that is wife had died and he had lots of different breed of dogs to get rid of, i was enquiring about a husky called tanner, then following week tanner had became a german shepherd lol i know what to look for now.

    just hope i don't get much spam then.

    aww these guys are so fun!

    I ususally respond to a couple, then ask if they can get hold of mogwais or tribbles :D

    For the uninitiated, mogwais are what gizmo is in Gremlins, and tribbles are the furry things from star trek :cool:
