What is this? I know it's 'junk' but why does it say that my email add is ? I entered this add into my browser and there's no such address. Thanks for coming by to answer a computer newbie-still haven't taken a class in computers or anything-just quite curious.

You cannot know the source of an email by looking at the address alone. It is possible to mask an email as coming from any email address. There is also something called disposable email addresses, which expire after a few hours.
To spam? Or not to spam? That is the question.
Tis better to have spammed and lost than to have never spammed at all.
A spam in time saves 9.
Thank you both once again for being so very dependable here in the Forum Trenches. I bow to you! Disposable email addresses? Gad! So there's no point in putting these adds in my 'blocked senders' thingy? How, then, do I lessen these annoying msgs? Or, is it even possible?
Poking Twitter with a stick? Nice. But ps, does it poke you back? THAT is the question.
Some email client software (Thunderbird, for example) enables you to change settings so that only message headers are downloaded. Then you can see from the sender whether you want to download the entire message. You can also filter incoming mail in many other ways.
Thunderbird does not automatically expand incoming messages, so if something looks strange, you can right-click on the message to send it to trash without ever opening it.

I just joined Pinterest. With Twitter, people who follow you get your tweet in their newsfeed. I follow some people on Pinterest but do not see how that helps me to see their pins. Also when I get an email from...

I posted a story somewhere and the keepers of the site (Ezine) said my link or url link (something to that effect) was broken. I had posted the address as a copy/paste from my address bar at the top when the...

Are we supposed to get notification of comments that are classified as Spam? I only just noticed that we can now "delete forever" comments, so I went to the Comments section of my account and applied the...

HubPages is very firm in their rule to only use photos for which you have permission to use. Hypothetically, what happens if you break this rule? I've seen many people using images that are clearly not theirs to use and...
