Just had an E-Mail from i think from pcadvisor about
Kieren McCarthy's brand new book.

Is this a genuine E-mail from PCAdvisor???

And did anyone else receive this?

Reason i ask is for one thing the PCAdvisor logo is Yellow, whats up with that??

Just got it and came here to find out what it is. I have no clue if it is real or not.

Just got the mail too. Mark5001. Yes Sex is real enough, but ..... (Sorry I felt the dreaded "Silver Mouse" hovering....)

I hope this thread isnt deleted just cause of the dreaded S word,

But seriously is this a genuine E-Mail from PCAdvisor as it looks very dodgy to me.

This is a genuine PCA email, but it wasn't put past me to authorise, as it should have been. Apologies for any confusion this caused.

I guess seeing the word Sex in an E-Mail made me a bit cautious,

Thanks for clearing that up, but why the yellow logo?

Just went to the site sex(dot)com,

Im surprised pca allowed this,

Lets put it this way i have no need for sexual enhancers and free videos.

I can see why this guy made a fortune now.

It was mentioned on the UK2 blog a while back;

Just to clarify - the story (and email) concerns the battle for ownership of that particular domain and an extremely profitable website.
I don't think for a moment that those responsible for sending the email were intending to encourage visits to the actual site in question.

and like simonjary I'm sorry for the confusion it's obviously caused.

Simon has clarified the position, and I suggest we talk about something else, such as how to build a rowing boat in twelve hours flat - it's raining like it's never rained before where I am now, and I swear I just saw an old guy leading some animals into a barge-like thing.
