It seems that all the efforts to make RGB popular are getting results. Today I received the first "friendship offer" thorugh this site. It says:
Greetings to you,My name is Rose, i view your profile in this site and i decide to communicate with you, it will be my pleasure if you will be my friend, i wish if you will respond to my mail box so that i will tell you more about my self.and sent you my photo, i hope to hear from you.
Hmm, does Rose knows I am a female? With preference for men?
Had my suspisions about the same thing so visited RGB tonight. You gave me the answer right away Lusi.

I received the same message....
I suspect the fragrant and persistant Rose will suffer terminal wilt courtesy of the cancelled account greenfly rather sharpish...
Me too. She (it) just joined this morning. Rossy is on the chopping block.
Got the same email, auto deleted it asap
Just reported that Rose is no longer with us. Please, no one reply to that e-mail for your own benefit.
I received this morning also the same email from Rose !
About 200 members got that message and it doesn't look like it was automated. I think we have some things in place to atleast prevent automated. It's not so easy to discourage humans, but I we'll have to implement some things and be vigilant. We will.
Rose, I adviced you: That soup isn't good for you!
I didn't get one: it's not fair!
I did get a message on the 12th from the user Stegrif; just saying hello. Is this similar?
hmm, the wrong kinda attention! I wonder if rose struck a lil too early ? :P
we might soon need to have blackout areas for specialists interested in "friendship".
I was so lonely, and Rose looked like she might be good value. My heart has been toyed with again!
Hehehe, I did get the same message.
Popular? Yeah, my new image was downloaded 10 times during the night. That's amazing... or some kind of a cheat! :P
BTW. I received that e-mail from rose both from sxc and rgb! That MUST be love!
that image is destined for massive downloads ;)
O Oh just send rose some money i felt so sorry for here and al the bad things
that happened ;-) Nice picts by the way but in real live she probably looks like this:
I have a feeling she looks more like this (bad hair day):
You could be right, she's from Nigeria i believe
From Nigeria? Does she have several million pounds that she has inherited, but would like to share the money with you?
@19 Officially lol'd there
aha, rosy eyes.
We were able to locate Rossy's partner.
Here is her mugshot:
@21 it looked like the spammer came from Senegal.
