Just received a text message from sms@20nobama120.com
stated that Obama is out of touch with the middle class that needs jobs.

I knew it was spam so I deleted it right away, but it said for more information call 210-xxx-xxxx.
Found it odd that I received spam about Obama stating to call a "210" number on the day that he's here in San Antonio.

Any others receive this text?

That is why I always give fake numbers and addresses to everyone. Does Academy really need my phone number when I buy a pair of shorts???? Big Brother folks! Why is he here anyhow?

Got the same txt just now and it also had a local number; I wouldn't be surprised if our own carriers were selling our information to 3rd parties.

I spammed it as well, but i'm curious what nonsense the number would've led you to hear.

No one has any idea as to who is sending them. I'm with the other folks in thread that have not had my in-box chirp with Spam. Maybe its the internet sites some people go to!
