    Is someone confused, or just trolling?

    Email from Amazon, sent by "[email protected]" to the email address I have posted here in my sig.

    "mr unlmited bandwidth,

    I found this magazine at Amazon.com and thought you might find it of
    interest.

    xxx"

    Is someone confused, thinking I'm someone else (because I don't offer unlimited bandwidth. Never have, never will). Or is this just a troll that is trying to start harassing me from perhaps a comment of mine at some previous point where I said hosts that promise unlimited are liars?

    I'm aware of a 2mhost.com (2Mhost.com) and an r2host.com (R2host.com) participate on these forums. I do not know them, nor do I have any affiliation with them. I think someone's confused.

    Who posts from 216.222.232.16? Who is "Robert E. Budin MD"? What is the meaning of this? You've got the wrong person, pal.

    hehe welcome to the world of getting spamed.
    it seems to be a new way to spam people or just someone who has a LOT of time on there hands. and sent it to a bunch of people. or it could be a former client that isnt to happy with you.

    shrug just some ideas of what it could be

    This company is new, so it's not that. It's also not SPAM. The mention of unlimited bandwidth and emailing an address that is munged where someone would have to specifically and intentionally email me personally, indicates it was someone at this forum that is confusing me with someone else.

    It was to show the content of the email, nothing more.
