Your right jimcrow, I do like davecook, even if it doesn't seem so....

dave, my name is Stephanie. I live in a small town in Western Australia called Wandering.We are farmers, Merino and Dorsets - Poll Herefords, although changing that as we have been buying Angus bulls for the last few years. My hubby is currently on the header - Oats for feed and barley for income. We don't grow wheat although the wheatbelt starts about 110kms from here. ( don't do miles) You can google us on the map. Boddington is about 24kms away and has a bauxite mine - Worsley Alumina - as well as the gold mine - Newmont - which opened 5 or so years ago.
Please don't judge all Aussies on me. Most of us are really nice!!!!

I'll respond to your reply specifically because you don't want me to!

I can now see you have a problem with the webteam here, but still wish to hide your previous RC identity. Shame for you that I saw through you instantly.

Still, I feel sorry for any genuine person has recieved spam in their inbox, but my advice to user773660 is to either delete the spam, or just forward it to the webteam and then delete it from their inbox. Spam is a part of life when using the internet.

So are trolls, it's just I like feeding them from time to time..........

Thanks for passing that on.
Hope the Web team do something about this.
Don't feel so bad about calling there slackness into account.
