Illegal Drug Sales – And Slaves

I’m not sure about this letter I got today.  It seems to advertise enough stuff that it’s an obvious joke… but I can’t quite figure out who benefits.  It was definite SPAM, not sent to me personally I think.

The link used worked, but it sent me to a message forum system that seemed to not allow new members… almost like you would expect from somebody trying to sell illegal drugs and gay slaves.  It made me wonder about what kind of ideas real drug dealers think about the web.  In a perfect imperfect world, it would be cool for seller and dealers to be able to find new markets… but in reality, I can’t see how it could work.  If nothing else, it was strange enough to make it to my collection of ODD EMAIL. No names and email addresses have been changed in my repost, because I believe there may be no innocent to protect.  Note the poorly spelled words.  Who doesn’t have a spell checker these days?  Stoners… Hmmm… that fits.
