While I typically like how the Internet allows you to lurk about with no
"face", I am particularly annoyed with somebody out there who has a little
too much free time.

Over the last few months, I have posted want-ads on the Sneezy classfieds
stating that I'm looking for out of print or unavailable (Ie Russian)
music to add to my library. I get roughly 2-3 responses a week from
supposedly various people saying they have all sorts music to sell me
cheap (or just give me).

It took me longer than it should have to realize that all of these
responses were coming from email addresses at Juno. They never respond
back. Today, they didn't even bother to come up with a new address!! I
got replies from a "retired Vegas doubler" and an "African-American
clarinetist who just finished studying in Russia" FROM THE SAME EMAIL
ADDRESS.

What does this person get out of doing this? They are not making money off
me. They are just wasting their time and mine.

Very frustrating!!!
