    I know it probably sounds funny to you guys, but I'm trying to work on a little project and I'm looking for people to help me out. I'm trying to get people from around the world to send a postcard to my girlfriend here in Phoenix, Arizona as a show of my affection and how she "means the world to me". If any of aren't opposed to doing a perfect stranger a HUGE favor, but only a simple task I would like to hear from you. I can definately reimburse you for your troubles, but I can't imagine postcards and postage would cost all that much. Call me a hopeless romantic, I guess.

    Edit: please try FanForce Community

    Send me on PM your girlfriend's address and the text you want me to write on it, and she'll receive at least one nice love postcard from Romania!

    Hold down. Hei, hei... calm down. Boys and girls, relax... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Sfatul meu: nu trimiteti nimic nimanui.
    Asta este una dintre cele mai noi metode de personal informations hunting aparute pe internet. Cu alte cuvinte, SCAM. Cereri de genul asta curg pe internet de aproape un an de zile, eu am primit zeci pe adresa de mail de la birou.
    Textul e vechi si folosit cu orice ocazie, iubire, prietena lui, bla-bla-bla... Pe tip nu-l intereseaza decat adresa voastra postala, atat, pentru ca mai tarziu sa va pomeniti in curia postala cu tot felul de pliante si rahaturi de car nu mai puteti scapa, venite din intreaga lume. Tipul colecteaza informatiile, le pune intr-un fisier excell iar apoi le vinde pe bani frumosi companiilor de marketing direct.
    Aveti idee cat costa o baza de date cu adrese complete din intreaga lume, cu, sa zicem, 20.000 de entries?? Cel putin 100.000 de dolari. Poate voi nu o sa va scrieti adresa pe felicitare, plic, pachet, dar cu siguranta altii, care nu stiu despre ce este vorba, o vor face.
    Dap, pare incredibil dar este adevarat. Din cauza softurilor pentru serverele de mail, ce sunt tot mai performante si blocheaza din start orice mesaj electronic care intra in categoria spam, toata nebunia asta s-a mutat pe forumurile de discutii iar incet-incet se va muta la suprafata. Adica in casutele de posta reale.
    In aceasta categorie de spam as introduce si celebrele scrisori africane :) Dar despre astea banuiesc ca ati auzit cu totii :)
    Eh, este vorba despre acelasi lucru.
    Be smart.

    Nu stiu daca ai dreptate. Tipul vrea doar sa fie trimisa o felicitare banala, prin posta. Nu e vorba de e-card, adresa de mail, etc. Pe o simpla felicitare, expeditorul nu-si trimite adresa, nu cred ca ar face cineva asa ceva. Se va vedea doar ca vine din Romania, eventual orasul din care e trimisa. Asta-i tot. Parerea mea e ca nu-i deloc "periculos". Dar asta nu inseamna, intr-adevar ca intentia ar fi nevinovata. Desi nu cred. Dupa cum observi, tipul e inscris pe forum din 99, si am mai vazut posturi de-ale lui, legate de SW, pe alte borduri (cel putin parca asa-mi aduc aminte). Deci nu cred ca s-a inregistrat acum, doar ca sa faca rau. O fi doar vreun hopeless romantic...

    Posibil ca intentiile lui sa fie cat se poate de curate si sincere, nu contest asta.
    Dar... mare atentie. Daca va incerca sa devina suspicios de curios referitor la cine sunteti, de unde sunteti etc.. be carefull.

    atunci, daca e adevarat, recomand altceva:

    1. daca puneti scrisoarea sau vederea nu va dati adresa postala de retur (a expeditorului);
    2. inchiriati o casuta postala la orice oficiu postal si tot ce primiti merge acolo.

    Pe de alta parte am intrat pe profile-ul lui si am vazut cam cine este (are multe postari asa ca nu stiu ce sa zic). Puteti sa o intrebati pe Obi Anne despre asta

    Eu cred ca nu e cazul sa ne batem chiar in halul asta capul cu treaba asta. Auzi, sa inchiriem o casuta postala... Mai bine nu-i trimitem nici o felicitare, ha, ha!
    Si nu cred ca-si va bate capul cineva din America sa trimita reclame cuiva dintr-o tara asa... inapoiata ca Romania, right? Parca-i aud: "Where the hell is Romania, anyway? It's something about that guy, Dracula, right?"...

    SWEET!!! You're the only country that has replied to me so far. The only problem is that I only need ONE of you guys to help, because it would kinda ruin the effect if she gets a whole ton from one country, so we need to decide on that. I guess I prefer it to be a guy or at least written to look like a guy since nobody wants to recieve a love postcard written in girly handwriting. No offence to you girls. What I'm doing is trying to get postcards from around the world that I'm going to then attach to eachother and frame it so you can see it from both sides. Bless your guys hearts for helping me with my cheezy gift, but I hope it shows what she means to me and how much trouble I'm going to for a Christmas gift.

    Send it to:

    EDIT: OOPS I SHOULDN"T POST AN ADRESS ON AN OPEN FORUM, I'LL PM IT.

    I'm not sure if you guys do any kinda of international codes on addresses...

    As to what to say????? Jeez, I can't believe I didn't think of that yet..

    I guess just write: I LOVE YOU, ADAM

    I suppose. I guess write her address and the message in all capital letters so it's easily legible if's hanging on a wall. Man, you are a great people for willing to help like this. If I'm ever in Romania I'll buy you some beers. As to the postcard, it can just be any kinda dorky picture of Romania or anything like that. She is going to be so thrilled.

    ADAM
