    What, the CIA help desk had a thing on their message that it was bogus? So did you find out the hard way by down loading it? Just curious what the questions were.
    They must be on to you hanging out with us awful gun folks. [peep]

    haha, that's kind of funny. :D I would like to remind that dude making the email that the CIA is too busy smuggling drugs into the country and training terrorist cells to bother with emails for "illegal browsing". I think the FBI has a cybercrime task force set up just for that, however, but they mostly deal with cyber CRIMES. :D

    Still, this thread made me laugh terribly. :p
