Shoot Em

Got to agree with the poster who suggests shooting them.

The guy could have helped himself

Seems the admin at mildenhall.com could have helped himself with a more friendly and informative email. His message "xxx@domain.com is using an incorrect email address you must have supplied yourself. Get it fixed NOW!" is a bit terse.
