Are you asking whether this is a real email, if Tom is actually going to delete your MySpace account?

Er no. I was pretty sure it wasn't. I just thought this was where you posted these things.

Speaking of Tom, why does his page suck so badly if he is the Administrator? He can't put a few minutes into finding a new background or something??

I ignored that bulletin last week, and my account works just fine. I also doubt that Tom would include "Sucks cause its not a joke" in a bulletin.

And we all know nobody but the real Tom could sign a message with a capital 'T', then an 'o', then an 'm'.

Reminds me of the time I signed in to a popstar chat room thingy. Supposedly the star would drop in occasionally and his text would be the one one showing up white. It was fun to sign in with his first name and watch all the excitement as people assumed I was him and asked all sorts of questions. Of course, I never outright claimed I was him, and my text wasn't white, but that didn't stop some people from making the wild assumption that nobody but "Fred" could sign in as username spelt F-r-e-d.

So Tom is a real person, then?

Sorry if I sound clueless...it's just that I've been reading similar posts for awhile now, and not being too familiar with MySpace, am completely lost re: context. (Also at the notion that random users sit round and think up inane pranks like this.)

and who doesnt what? What?!

Sure, he's the mysterious force behind a multimillion-user web community, but can he work punctuation?
