A Reminder: Don't Do It

The UCLA email spammers are back with messages telling you to "re-validate" your email: Mail Service HelpDesk Mail Service messaging center wish to inform all Email Users. We are upgrading our Webmail clients. Your email account will be upgrade to a new enhanced webmail interface provided by Mail Service. Mail Service will discontinue the use of our current Email System. You are therefore required to re-validate your mailbox.

To re-validate your mailbox please click the link below: [link you absolutely should not click]

Note that the message doesn't come from UCLA but from "marceloc[at]"  It contains British usage: ("center wish" instead of "center wishes"). And it contains a typo: ("will be upgrade").  But the real key is that UCLA never sends such messages.  So just delete them and don't click on the links.

Of course, the correct British usage would be "...centre wish...", more likely it's just another typo.

Or maybe an American pretending to be British pretending to be American.

The problem can be reduced considerably by following one of the nutrition
diet plans designed both to help you lose weight and
to maintain proper vitamin levels. Still another way of curing obesity is to eat low carbohydrate, low
fat, high protein diets. Weight, just like calories comes in different forms.
