Someone was busy....

I went to look at the board just now and posts 4 through some-higher-number were all Egypt related. I really wondered what such a co-incidence that could be, until I clicked on the first few and saw the same advertisment at the bottom. Whew, someone sure was busy!

Weird too, I tried replying to the given email address and got back that it was not a good address. The author "Egyfriend" needs to repost with a good address. Well, maybe not. My email reply was not very polite nor gentlemanly. Totally out of character for me

I noticed all the Egypt posts too. But I was too lazy to check them out and (unlike some on this board) far too refined for an impolite post to the creator.

You are a gentleman Tom.

The impolite thing to do would be to reply with as many different email aliases as possible asking him for detailed luxury itineraries for a group of eight. Put him to work, long and hard, and string the spammer along until it came time to actually send in a deposit.

Not that I would do anything like that, but it's a suggestion >
