I was thought to be a spammer first. Having your country on spam list is tough.

Not too bad at all. We get a few trying to promote their own site or YouTube channel but that's about it.

Well that's good to hear. I know we're usually pretty neutral when it comes to popularity we do our own thing. Although right now I am trying to figure out how this PC at school booted and asked for a password BEFORE windows started and no it is not the BIOS settings we already checked that. So unless it has a virus I don't think we can fix it.
