I've heard that lads sometimes get wise to Gmail and sometimes refer to us as "Gmail jokers." Confused

So if I assume lads who use Gmail are smarter than the others, am I crediting them with altogether too much intelligence? Laughing

I prefer the stupid ones. They're much more fun.

In my limited experience, I don't think that the lads actually use G-mail for the same reasons that we do. I think it's more of it being another free webmail than anything else. For example, the death threat lad that I'm presently tormenting sent his initial threat via gmail, but all his follow up correspondence has been using yahoo. (of course, the fact that this g-mail account was shredded doesn't help Laughing )

Yep. I have had no problem baisting gmail lads. I just insure that I am invisble to them.

I think that has been mentioned once or twice and has now become another baiting legend. Funny how people like to generalize. Group all lads in a specific category. I think they use gmail because it seems to add a measure of respectability.

I like the smart lads because it is more of challenge. Once they are on the line, they can't believe they could be tricked so you can hold them longer.

Just my two cents worth!

Having been involved in quite a bit of mass mailing, and attempting to keep up to date mail lists, it became apparent that another scam fighting outfit, and Yahoo themselves were shutting down lads email accounts at the rate of 10 - 15% per day.
Consequently, many lads opted for other providers. Gmail was one of the free alternatives, but even they were shutting accounts down for breach of TOS.
I don't believe any particularly reasoned thought process was involved by the lads. Gmail was available.

I agree with everyone else who says that it's just a coincidence that they use gmail. The lads seem to find every available free webmail provider and use them. I've seen lads using webmail I've never heard of.

I also agree with Dr. Who's comment:

and would like to add that the smarter lads are probably more successful at scamming, therefore, us baiting them probably has more benefit for potential victims.

Gmail is just another place to get a free email for most scammers, some are aware of IPs and some go to various lengths to avoid sending it.

Some lads are dumb, some are smart, some use gmail, some dont, but no lad is going to not scam somebody just because they have a gmail address.

I dont believe that it would be true that only smart lads use gmail any more than I believe baiters not using it are dumb. I dont have any figures of course on the subject but from my observations it is pretty even either way.

As for baiting the smart ones, that's my preference as well, my reasoning is that the smart ones are most likely more successful and need a few more hurdles than the average dumb lad.

Remember that baiting is not only fun, it is also good for the community so long as it's done correctly Wink

A year or more, ago opening a Gmail account was not easy ...you remember when it was by invitation only ? .... as it became the 'thing to have' plus it stripped out your personal IP address it quickly became a chosen tool for Baiters. The Gmail Joker was born.

Since Gmail has become Free to All, more and more non-baiters (potential victims) have started to use it. Because of this I'm sure that our Lads don't show the same amount of distrust of Gmail as they did a year ago.

However I still use Gmail to 'send as' Yahoo!

Me neither. Although, I must admit, baisting turkeys seems more worth my while... Laughing
