Um, nothing personal, but shouldn't most of us who are intelligent enough to use SG to avoid spam realize that this isn't really from SG? Especially the "Enter your password here in plain text:" request...


:D

Appreciate your great service! Thanks for providing it for FREE, and keep up the great work.

Actually no, especially for the youngesters out there that are 5-13yo... not many are that bright at all.

Yes 5-13 do use email, and some DO use SG because they want to keep their email private, this I have been privy to. Sorry to burst your bubble on the masses out there :lol: :oops: but they are still not that bright.

Point taken.

I'm doing my best to teach my children well (they all have SG accounts), but I guess phishing schemes, etc work because the masses aren't smart enough to be slightly suspicious.
