Well, this is a question I do to you all, my fellow scambaiters. If your parents/brothers/sisters/sons/whatever, know about the fact you practice this beautiful sport called "Scambaiting".

As for me, well, none of my family knows about it, since they are quite paranoid and think that the scammers can track you and kill you in your tracks, no matter how much proofs you present them that you play it safe (proxies, safe accounts, et al, and I'm smart enough to tell not my real info or a photo or send a picture of myself...).

Anyways, what do you have to say?

My sister read some of my baits and thought they were spooky - as if I was immersing myself too deeply or something; nothing about safety...

Couple friends know, my wife knows about it, not sure shes knows if I bait or not. I told my mother about the eater, and she said "it's just not worth it. sounds dangerous."

^^^ And it is a bloody good idea *not* to tell a relly what name you have given your latest alter ego when you visit them for dinner. Especially when you write on a scrap of paper and pass the note to your old mum. And most certainly not when said relly is busy masticating a morsel.

Yes, they know....my Mom doesn┤t really care about it, my Dad loves it and really enjoys it, when I tell him what the other baiters here do.(he also received Shivers book for christmas and is currently reading it), my sister finds it very funny too. And they are not concerned about my safety, since I told them from the beginning, that I am baiting safe Smile

Mrs Druff knows and my 15yo lass knows that I am 'doing something weird' but doesn't really know what it's all about. It annoys Mrs D when I have a fit of laughter reading some of the baits when she is trying to watch Corrie on telly.

Apart from that no one knows except for one very close friend.

PS Mrs D says I have to ask when February's lad calender will be available. I have to print them for her Very Happy

My sisters (at least one of them is a member here), my parents and two of my aunts (they think it's cleaver), my brother-in-law (who thinks karma will come and get me), my fiance (who humors me but isn't really interested, though he took out his frustration on one of my lads once..) and a few close friends. At work, my boss and one of the engineers know as well, though I never bait from work.

My wife KNEW about it, but then she yelled at me and told me to quit being a vigilante. Oh the joys of marriage! So, no- she does not know I bait.

A couple of friends think it is hysterical, but I only tell those that I trust because the wife would kill me!

My husband is the ONLY one and he gets a kick out of it. I can not get him to bait. That is fine!
Everyone else would think that I was insane. Shocked

My wife has no clue, and would have absolutely no interest in it. Neither do my kids (too young), parents, sisters, brothers-in-law (brother-in-laws? what is the correct plural form?).

I've got a few friends who would thoroughly enjoy this, but to date, I don't think any of them has bothered.

I'm all alone! Sad (sniff)

Not only does my family know, but they fully support it. My wife thinks that it is, "a nice relief" for me. The kids, especially my 11 year old son, loves it when some lad is traveling thousands of miles into nowhere. He even wants to join us and have Mini Me as his avatar.

Sometimes, when we have not that much to do early in the evening (which is the very early hours of the morning in Nigeria) we make all sorts of phone calls to the lads. Great family fun!

My best friend knows and has even helped out a bit once. He was the author of the Ordainment Cerimony instructions for the TWAT church.

My SO was first against all this, but after I got a lad to send us a new painting she's been ok with it Laughing
My sister keeps saying I should use my twisted mind to do something productive.
My brother just says "You're sick!" and laughs on top.
Most of my friends at work think this is a hilarious hobby, but some of them have started to fear me. (When we were in strike, I used to make the lads send me pictures of themselves holding placards with certain messages written on them... then I passed them to the scabs who were chopping my dolla FOR REAL).

My husband knows about eater, but doesnt know I bait. He saw LadVampire running on the computer and freaked the hell out the other day. Laughing "Gaahh! What if the police come?" As usual, I alleviated his fears and told him to hitch up his big girl panties and relax a bit.

I've explained the whole thing to him, and he just doesnt understand the motivation behind it. Oh well, maybe one day. Smile

The family doesn't know I do this. They think I spend far too much time at the puter as it is. And they probably would think me a nutcase.

I have mentioned that I bait as a hobby to some people , but no one has ever asked about it.

I have a brother in Law who enjoys the trophy pix I send him, His sister, ie Hayley knows I do it, but with much eye rolling and head scratching. She has no idea why I want to torment a distant lad, or risk his retribution.

She can NEVER see the death threats in my signature. If she looks over my shoulder at one of my posts, I scroll down a bit so it goes out of sight.

My immediate family and closest friends know about it. My wife had to be told seeing as I have a large folder full of semi and totally naked women on my PC, plus get "ladies" wanting to sweet talk to me on IM all the time.

My immediate family and my close friends know that I do this. I don't tell the women that I date that I do this until things are better established.

I was getting a lot of requests for "so what's the latest" that I decided to set up an Angelfire website so that they could read the latest for themselves.
