So the "father of spam" is careful not to really use the Internet so he doesn't get a lot of spam ("Opening Pandora's In-Box," May 11). Every day I have to delete 100 to 150 messages when I open up my e-mail. It seems your article left out one important detail about the father of spam -- his e-mail address.

Federal prosecutors said Tuesday that they had charged two men with stealing e-mail addresses and other information from about 120,000 Apple iPad tablet users. Daniel Spitler, 26, of San Francisco and Andrew Auernheimer, 25, of Fayetteville, Ark., each were accused last week of conspiring to hack into AT&T Inc.'s servers and possessing subscriber data from those servers, according to the U.S. attorney's office in New Jersey, where the case is being prosecuted. Prosecutors said the criminal charges stem from a "brute force" hacking spree that took place over several days last June.

Perhaps now, after suffering an injured ankle, losing to the Clippers and enduring endless criticism of the tweet that wouldn't die, LeBron James has a better understanding of karma. ? James, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat won't be the last contenders swept under by the rising tide that is Blake Griffin & Co. ? All-in efforts by Baron Davis are always a pleasant surprise. ? If it comes down to a choice between Griffin and Lamar Odom for an All-Star spot, Odom might be out of luck.

You've probably heard it a thousand times: There's no free lunch. But sometimes it helps to get a little reminder. And so we turn our attention to e-mails making the rounds from something called BestShoppingRewards. The company has a variety of come-ons, all basically structured the same. The e-mail I'm looking at says, "Vote for your favorite item at McDonald's and get a FREE $50 McDonald's Gift Card!" When I visited the BestShoppingRewards website the other day, the pitch was for a "FREE $500 Visa Gift Card!"

THE DUMP -- Dr. Renee Cobos, who recently took a chunk out of my head, came to the telephone with test results, said I was fine and I wouldn't have to come home from The Dump right away for treatment. I told her to check those test results again -- there had to be something there. "Enjoy yourself in Detroit," she said, and for a doctor, she sure knows how to hurt a guy. * I CHECKED with the wife. "Stay in Detroit as long as you want," she said, and I think she meant it.

These are the times that try men's souls? Not that it takes much to try souls these days in Lakerdom, or Cavalierdom, or Whereverdom. So, it wasn't altogether surprising to see the Lakers' Game 3 loss, cutting their lead over the Jazz to 2-1, taken as a signal of impending doom. One website led with headlines blaring: "Are Lakers losing Kobe Bryant's waiting game?" "Lakers in need of a wake-up call." "Lakers might make a change at center." And that was The Times' Lakers page.

A new worm called Netsky.B emerged on the Internet, spreading by mimicking familiar e-mail addresses and enticing users to open file attachments containing malicious software, security experts said. The worm, once activated, forwards itself to e-mail addresses found on an infected computer's hard drive. Netsky.

Q: I use the e-mail program Netscape Messenger. I want to send an e-mail to everyone in one of my address books, but I don't want everyone to be listed on the e-mail. The list is extremely long, and I don't want it to seem too impersonal. Is there a way to do this, other than to send individual e-mails? A: Well, the friendly geeks here at Q&A labs are always eager to provide service that seems quite personalized.

Gabriela Villegas scrolled through the online profiles, searching for a photo and description that appealed to her. She wasn't surfing for a date or networking for new friends. She was on the Kiva website, reading through stories of impoverished entrepreneurs in developing countries, trying to decide to which venture she would extend a $25 business loan. "Twenty-five dollars -- that's probably how much I spend on just one meal," said Villegas, 25, of Manchester, Conn.

At the touch of a button last Friday, the Clinton campaign accidentally sent out the personal e-mail addresses of hundreds of reporters and members of the campaign's inner circle. The addresses appeared at the top of a message intended to offer an update on a visit the first lady was planning to Manhattan. The list was then forwarded to Internet gossip Matt Drudge, who posted a report about it on his Web site Sunday.
