The ign'ant masses ba tena. They don't listen to direct advice about not posting their details online, nowhere. Next thing they'll be called by 'agents' who'll promise them news anchoring jobs in brazil and thailand...etc etc. Hope they see the foolishness of green.arrow b4 they post their staff.....but oh wait, they simply don't read, not even the post description, they just post!!!!

Arae you talking about the idiots who write their info requesting casting directors to contact them for auditions ... Bad Start to 2012 ... The Thais are now onto loaded dreads ... I'm just waiting on the next "ingenuity in trafficking" ploy to hit "South African man caught smuggling cocaine in his butt implants" ...
