<-heh-> There's a rumor out that an advertisement was placed in a gay magazine using my name, address, e-mail address, and possibly one of my obsolete switched 56 or ISDN telephone numbers. I've certainly received enough e-mail from people asking for sex and mentioning the ad to want a copy to frame for my wall very badly!
If anyone has seen the advertisement, please let me know which magazine and what issue it's in. I've asked and I believe I will get the information this evening. Still, if you have a copy, keep it and I'll autograph it. }:-} -- The Skeptic Tank http://www.skeptictank.org/ firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.taxexemptchildabuse.net/ http://www.crackpots.org/ http://www.squirreling.org/ http://www.reprogram.net/ http://www.bobminton.org/ http://www.xenu.net/ http://www.nots.org/

If the rumor is true I am _not_ sorry that the nuts did it. I do have the name of the publication and hopefully someone will recognize it and let me know if it's true. (I posted it here this evening.)
If the insane cultists did, that's a wonderful badge of honor that will be posted proudly on my office wall beside the crook's hate flyers about me. My office name plate at work has an "SP4" sticker on it and if I can find this advertisement, I will purchase at least ten copies to send to friends, family, and everyone on staff here at The Skeptic Tank.
But thanks for your concern. If the e-mail I've been getting isn't itself a lie, I'll have far too much fun with it.
