Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.
Even though our Rickroll protection story is technically true now, I'm still going to call these people BBelievers...
Firefox has just stepped it up again. Where U at IE?

Now for a few Esenam Ayele BBelievers from his MySpace inbox...
Hello, and Happy Be-lated B-bay. Reading your Bio, what is this about wrestling tigers?Actually it's 'wrestling lions,' but still, Esenam is a man of many talents.
for some one who gave U$ 12 million to somebody, i guess broke is never came to you.. and i believe another U$ 500. 000 wouldn't make you poor.... isn't it? What's $500,000 among friends? Geez. Not greedy or anything are you?

As long as you're driving on two wheels, consider the savings of driving on no wheels. Roads should be replaced by a series of ramps.
That sounds like a lot of fun to me.

Some weeks back you had a guy who wrote in on the mailbag mention his 13-year-old daughter watching TV with him and seeing "1337?" on a door, and she immediately said, "oh, leet!"
well, I think I have that one beat. When my daughter started talking, I started saying random stuff around her, and she started repeating fragments of it...now she's 3 years old and yesterday she brought two of her stuffed animals, cats, to me, and said she wanted the two animals to have a conversation. I held one of the cats and started talking, she did the same. Partway through the conversation, she says, "Daddy, cats wouldn't say that...they'd say 'meow' or 'purr' or 'all your base are belong to us.'"
There is hope for the next generation!
The winner of the 2003 and 2006 Geek Limerick contest has volunteered to write a weekly limerick for BBspot. Seth also has a new book out that you should take a look at..
Seth sent this one over a when the Rickroll story came out, but I didn't get a chance to post it until now.
Although BBspot's mostly satirical,
Sometimes Brian foments a small miracle.

Dislike being RickRolled,
And can now dodge his video lyrical.
