Hi Dave,

OK.  Yes you are right I did miss your posts.  Although when I looked 
again in my archive there they were- sorry.

You mentioned a business name and a website to go to which is often 
the mark of a spammer. Having a throwaway hotmail account, is 
often the mark of a spammer.

OK I'll put the event  down to 'youthful exuberance' on your behalf, 
and move on.

Hmmm, well I do regard spamming as a heinous crime, and something 
that is best stamped out by a short sharp stomp.   The reason I 
posted to the forum about it was so that it would act as a deterrant 
and reminder to others.   There was no personal vendetta implied.  I 
can assure you that anyone else who did the same thing would have got 
the same treatment from me. 

Anyway, it looks like I misread you and for that I am sorry.

So Dave, hopefully we will hear from you again, but not in *that*
