When this got unretired, I read "spammer" as "spanner".

I'm not sure which I prefer.

Of all the spam PMs I've received in chat rooms and forums that I've turned into conversations, not a one was saved :/

I do have a conversation with a troll from a couple weeks ago though...

Someone I need to recruit here...

One of my friends' (Misha) email account was hacked recently; apparently his entire address book received scam emails asking for money. Another friend (Akiva) decided to have a conversation with this spammer and chronicle it at http://aleffert.livejournal.com/91098.html . Since this is not my work, I will not submit it as a task completion, but it belongs in this collection.

how about a scammer?

I've never had a conversation with a spammer(they don't typically use real email addresses, duh) but have had plenty of convos with scammers, including one I documented on Facebook just in case I had to defend my actions at any point.. Does that count?

This is harder than it seemed. I have answered the daughter of a diposed King and an overthrown central american president both who would like my help getting a huge amount of money into the US. I also was contacted by a solicitor and discovered I was the only known aire of a British Lord. However, no one has written me back yet. Maybe I will have more luck with the gentleman that has made millions working from home and wants to show me how to do it to. Or maybe some viagra from a canadian pharmacy...

looks promising
