I hope that you learned your lesson. Never give a spammer so little as the
time of day. Spammers exist because people accept their wares. Dump every
unbidden commercial offer; if everybody would do that, there would be no
money in spamming, and no spam. Even just clicking on links, and downloading
free programs; the links are "pay per click", and the spammer gets paid by
the ad sponsor; the "free" programs come with advertising pop ups which call
home, and the spammer gets paid by the advertiser every time you run that
