She’s goin’ for your knee again, Ronald


Blog Guy, with your blog going away soon, we need some closure regarding Ronald Basler.

Just when I thought unwanted e-mails couldn’t get any stupider, along come some spammers mistaking me for a guy named RONALD Basler. The actual screen grab above shows just a small sampling of the offers Ronald is getting at my e-mail address.

Could you resist the temptation?
