I just got notice, (thank you for letting me know), that some people have received some "spam" that may look like it was "approved" by us. Obviously these folks took alot of the e-mail addresses from our penpal signups, (I have now hidden all the comments). I am so sorry about this...we would never ever ever approve of filling up your e-mail boxes with spam of any kind. Please accept our heartfelt apologies, and if anyone knows of anything we can do to avoid this in the future, please let us know.
I know somewhere I read that if you put your e-mail address like so
twigandtoadstool(at)mail(dot)com, spammers can't use them...I don't know if there's any truth to this, but it's worth a try if you ever have to leave your e-mail address anywhere else.
goodness...it just disheartens me to know that there are such jerks out there!
