After a few 'unwanted and unnecessary e-mails I'm sorry, but to place a comment you will now have to become a 'FOLLOWER" - People can be and are nasty creatures.

I'm to be found on 'Facebook' as 'Ian Mitchell' and......
I've started using "Twitter" (mr le Marquis) much more, and you can be a part of it. On all my Websites you'll find, somewhere (generally at the top of the page) "Twitter Updates"- This gives you links to click on which will take you to interesting things....Try it!

Subject: Re: [Chez mr.le Marquis du Galipot.] Update Your Information.

One does ask oneself about the mental state of the people who send such bad hoax emails! One asks oneself about the mental state of any author of hoaxes and virus containing emails.
At least the Adware Spies, who follow you about on your travels on the web do serve a purpose - trying to find out what things you may be tempted to buy, and bombarding you with such offers. Annoying, yes, but at least there is a point. All the authors of adware would have to do in my case is to have a look at my Bank Balance, and they would change tactics, and start sending me sympathetic messages, or advise from sites about how to avoid suicide!
Mr J Smith, and all the others who offer me MILLIONS almost every day, should reflect on the problems they would give me, namely arranging my Tax position, with all that money! Nightmares, nightmares!
In all events, Mr J Smith, I'm sure you will understand when I give the advice to all my readers NOT to give any attention or details to this message, in any form. I would advise them, also, NOT TO CLICK ON THE LINK GIVEN! I'm certain this advice is not required, for ALL of my readers are INTELLIGENT people, unlikely to be taken in by Mr J Smith of Calcutta, India, or wherever, subterfuge Director of Security at Barclays (incidentally, it's not even marked "bank" or whatever!)
Maybe "Mr J Smith" was just bored!
No doubt Google Blogger will be able to inform me how this message appeared on a relatively serious and strictly security orientated  Site.
Logically, all replies to your address have been returned with the explication "USER UNKNOWN" .
