Re: [vox] Hi Folks, Check this out!!!!!!!!!

Um, I think this is spam. I think they are fishing for personal information that they can use in some way. If you sent them something by mail, then they would have your mailing address at a minimum. Obviously, I don't think anyone would send something... but then they work on percentages. If there is a 0.5% chance someone might, and there are 400 people on this list, 2 people might fall for it.

Hi folks,
Thanks for all that is going on here, at least it is giving some of as
who are new to Linux the opportunity to learn more about Linux. But of
as are unfortunate to find our in a remote locations where getting
access to this free but usefull software(i.e. Linux). I have read alot
about it and will love to try it out but can't get it since I live in
Ghana in Africa and does not have a credit card to be able to buy it
online and also since there is no store(Non that I know of) in our
part of the world where I can get one. I am with all humility
appealling to you all, that one of you buy or send me a copy of the
linux software so I can effectively be part of what is going on
here. Should any one of you decide to, he or she can send it
through my post and the address is:
