I do agree... but too late for me... images are burnt into my mind that I'd rather not have.  :-\

Envious? That's Photoshop, not the real thing ;)

Not for me (firefox user). It still says I have 5 messages yet I only see 3.

It only took 1 person to cause problems.

Someone called AmyH sent 2 gay porn messages via the Instant Messenging system. I not only deleted AmyH's account, but also all the messenges that AmyH sent. Consequently, your IM reports 2 more new messages than it should. All members who were PM-ed by AmyH will display the error of 2 "extra" new messages. This error will clear itself when the affected member accesses his inbox.

GAy porn!     Well done for blocking it before we got to see it.    (was it male or female gay porn?)
Tonight I’m going to party like it’s on sale for $19.99!
