Nice concept, but shouldn't that technically be ph phishing?

#2 Chish Thu, 18 Mar 2010 01:53:14
The Nigerian Prince hits! Your purse feels lighter.

#3 Sorceror Thu, 18 Mar 2010 02:04:55
I agree with #1, that was my first response.

#4 STL Thu, 18 Mar 2010 02:46:49
For some reason I couldn't think of "ph" at the time, but yes, it would have been much better.

#5 TobyBartels Thu, 18 Mar 2010 03:10:14
Spelling, shmelling (or schmelling, authorities differ), it's still an E.

#6 Sorceror Thu, 18 Mar 2010 03:12:25
#5: It's not just spelling. "Fishing" provides food; "phishing" claims to (but does not) provide cheap medication.

Welcome to Asidonhopo's cheap generics drugstore!

#8 Quint Thu, 18 Mar 2010 09:02:31
t - a scroll of mail.

Read what? t

"We here at Stash Community Bank are in the process of upgrading our database. Please help us by responding with your name, the dungeon level of your stash, whether it is locked, and whether it is protected by Elbereth."

"Welcome to Asidonhopo's jewelry and accessories store!"

You see here an expensive watch.

"For you, my lady, only 600 gold pieces."

You bought a Rolex watch for 600 zorkmids.

...

Asidonhopo offers you 1 gold piece for your Rolex watch. Sell it? [y/n]

A cheap imitation Rolex watch, you sold it for 1 gold piece. -more-
Asidonhopo gets angry!

A new meaning for Slashem's phishing pole.

#12 ctaboir Thu, 18 Mar 2010 19:43:19
But, first wish from random wand should be 2 blessed scroll of charging, not xDSM. Oh. OK forgot it's Dudley...

#13 Anonymous Thu, 18 Mar 2010 20:54:44
Maybe he already has charging scrolls.

#14 NobodySpecial Thu, 18 Mar 2010 23:09:42
Maybe he already has charging scrolls.

Only the kind that charges his credit card. I guess he should just be grateful that the item in slot "t" wasn't a scroll of steal identity.

#15 Sorceror Thu, 18 Mar 2010 23:52:19
Quint: "Asidonhopo gets angry!"
More like "You hear maniacal laughter close by."

#16 Quint Fri, 19 Mar 2010 08:24:25
No, I was going for Asidonhopo being so audacious as to gladly sell you a fake then complain when you sell it back to him.

It is true in China,too.
But they use SMS's instead of emails.
