Sorry you were bothered by this spam email. This particular person's profile has been deleted from WikiTree. They do keep trying and probably will come back again. But that's why we have Greeters and Rangers as the first line of defense against spammers and vandals.

LOL - I got one, so maybe she thought I was a man called Ross who couldn't spell his own name (I've been battling with this for years)
I haven't gotten one either. So maybe they respect their elders?
I ain't eld, only 38 ! !

I must be privileged to have received it last night then. And I agree with not being old. I'm 40 yet don't feel old. 

Well, I just hit the three quarter century mark last month. Does that qualify as elder?
Well, I’m not young, so no respect over here!
